Family, Police seek new leads in murder

On the first anniversary of the murder of Bobby Howell, his family is still looking for answers about who killed him and why. Their hope is that someone will remember the event and come forward with a lead that will bring the Ennis Police Department closer to finding the person who fatally shot Howell.

Howell’s aunt, Sherry Stockton, said the murder has had a traumatic effect on the family.
“It has been a difficult year for all of us because we don’t seem any closer to finding out what happened to Bobby or who is responsible,” she said. “It is hard to move on and go forward with your life when you haven’t been given closure on something as important as this. We just want someone to be brought to justice for what they did to our family and we are hoping that by talking about the event, someone will have the courage to come forward with what they know.”
Howell, 20, was a passenger in a vehicle traveling in the 300 block of E. Decatur St. in the early morning hours of March 16, 2008, when a shot from a passing vehicle hit him in the chest, fatally wounding him. Two other individuals were in the car with Howell. The driver was hit in the right wrist while the other individual was not harmed. After the shots were fired the driver of the car drove to the home of Howell’s mother in the 700 block of E. Milam St. where she called 911.
