Murdered soldier's father returns for 10th anniversary


It's a tragic story that continues to haunt family and friends of Cpt. Scott Corwin. It's been 10 years since the soldier was gunned down at Monterey Square in Savannah and the case still remains unsolved.

Corwin's father returns to Savannah every year to the very location where his son was shot twice while he and his girlfriend were walking home. WTOC met up with him on Thursday as he begs for someone to come forward.

"It's wearing me down," said Greg Corwin.  

This was an emotional day for Corwin, knowing his son Cpt. Scott Corwin's killer is still out there.

Cpt. Corwin had recently moved to Savannah and was assigned to the 92nd Engineer Batallion at Fort Stewart.  On May 29, 2014 Capt. Corwin and his girlfriend were walking through Monterey Square in the early morning hours when someone fired the shots.

Corwin's father said no one really knows what happened, not even his girlfriend. He said they aren't even sure if the shooter escaped on foot or was driving.

"Somebody knows something, and for whatever reason, they are not saying anything," said Corwin.

Corwin's family is now adding $5,000 to the reward for information boosting the total to $20,000, hoping that might be the incentive someone needs to come forward.

"Our job is to do everything we can to solve the case," he said.  

A case they don't want to go cold for another 10 years.

"My son swore to defend and protect everyone, including the guy that shot him," said Corwin. "Whoever it was, he was a captain of the United States Army. He didn't deserve to die like that."

Corwin met with Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police, including Chief  Julie Tolbert.

This year was the first time he has ever met with the chief of police and Corwin said he is confident the case is in good hands.

"I feel like her leadership might be the difference right now," said Corwin.

"We never give up," said SCMPD Capt. Carl Ramey. "The activity this case generates at this point are by any new leads that may come in and we are hoping to generate that."
