Murder case of Army Captain remains open after 10 years


Ten years have passed since Captain Scott Corwin was murdered in downtown Savannah, and his case remains unsolved.

Captain Corwin and his girlfriend were walking home through Monterey Square around 4 a.m. on the morning of May 29, 2004. The couple was approached by an unknown assailant, who shot and killed Captain Corwin, during the encounter.

Captain Corwin was a graduate of West Point and an Army Captain, stationed in the Savannah area. He was awaiting deployment to Iraq.

Corwin's father sat down with SCMPD investigators Wednesday including Interim Chief Julie Tolbert to discuss his son's case. This is the first time since his son was murdered that he has met with the police chief. 

The assailant remains at large and police need your help to solve this case.

Since it's the 10 year anniversary, the Corwin family is adding $5,000 to the $15,000 award from CrimeStoppers. $20,000 is now being offered for anyone with information that leads to an arrest. 

If you have any information on this case, call CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020.
