Family goes through another holiday season not knowing who killed loved one

NORTH CHARLESTON (WCSC) - The family of a North Charleston man who was murdered five years ago is going through another holiday season not knowing who did it.

North Charleston Police say the body of 21-year-old Isaac Dais was found in the back seat of a car on O'Hear Avenue on Dec. 4, 2010.

Investigators say the car's engine was still running and music was playing on the radio.

The murder happened nine days before Dais' birthday.

No arrest has been made.

"Torture, you have every holiday that goes by, My mom, she reminisces about him. It's difficult when you don't have closure," his brother George Dais said Wednesday.

George Dais says he spoke to his brother on the phone earlier that day and that night got the call that Isaac was dead.

"It's more difficult when you come out to a hospital and they're telling you that your brother is in the morgue and you got almost 50 people outside already knowing that he was dead prior to my own mom knowing."

George says cops have not given the family a motive for his brother's murder.

"I know he was out there in the streets and he made some terrible decisions, but at the end of the day a life should never been taken and just left on the side of the street."

He's convinced there are people out there who have information about the murderer, but are afraid to come forward.

"I think they're more afraid of being the fact that it's a cold blooded killer."

George and his mom say the best Christmas present they can receive is news of an arrest in their loved ones death.

"Whomever did this heinous act, the best thing I can say is God got your name, God got your number and may God rest your soul," George Dais said.

North Charleston Police say they are still actively investigating Isaac Dais' murder and are looking for leads.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
