Hettie Lowery

Hettie Lowery was 72-years-old when she was brutally stabbed to death.  It happened on January 7th, 1979.

Neighbors came to her house to take her to church.  When she didn't answer the door, they called her grandson.

When he got inside the home at 3316 Bradley Street he found body in her bedroom.

People in the neighborhood told police they saw a man watching the house just before the murder.  Police discovered the kitchen door unlocked and things strewn through the kitchen and living room.  Investigators believe a struggle started in that part of the house.
