    I knew Ian when he was younger. I use to be his afterschool care teacher. Ian was a wonderful child to have in the program. I was in total disbelief and shock when I heard about this in 2002. It broke my heart because he was such a sweet and respectful child. I pray that they find whomever is responsible for this horrible crime and his family can finally be at peace.

    I grew up in this area, near Parkwood. While I don't recall this story, as I long left Durham before then, this sounds like a story long forgotten. Sad, but if there are no clues or descriptions given, "no snitch'n" is in full force with this one. The killers are probably dead themselves already. I feel for this kid's family to deal with this.

    I posted several hints as to who did it, but the moderators are still in the belief that there are no such thing as Gangs in the area.

    I can't believe that a crime of this nature with that many perpetrators hasn't been solved or, at the very least, kept in the public spotlight!
