New Information in Stevens Murder

Police are hoping new information will reopen a murder case that has turned cold. One year ago, city worker Randy Stevens was gunned down in his driveway while on his way to work. Now police are releasing the description of a car they believe may have been involved.

"What we're releasing or looking for is a late '80s model blue box car, similar to a Caprice Classic," said Det. Mark Galipeau with the Savannah Police Department. "Also has a relatively new paint job on it with chrome wheels, also has tinted windows."

Police believe the driver of the car may have left the scene shortly after the incident. The new information comes one week after a painful anniversary. Last Friday, Stevens' family gathered in front of the house where it all happened for a candlelight vigil. One year later, they still don't understand why someone would gun down their loved one for no reason at all.

"I'm sad, I'm angry because I should have to live in fear, my husband should not have had to lose his life like this," said widow Linda Stevens.

Still the family has hope that this new information will bring some answers. "We're believing in this dream that we are going to find out what happened to Randy and that says to keep hope alive and we will," brother Bobby Stevens said.

Until someone's behind bars, the family says they'll continue to seek the truth behind that October morning. If you have any information regarding the car or any other information, you are asked to call CrimeStoppers at 234-2020.
