Dothan police still searching for clues in murder

Posted by: Melissa Johnson - bio | email

Dothan, AL (WSFA) - Police have now nailed down a motive in the murder of 69-year-old Grace Bell Bridges.

Investigators say Bridges was killed during a robbery, and that items from her furniture store are missing.

They've also narrowed down the time of the murder to just after 12:00 PM.

Investigators spent much of the day talking with folks who frequent the area.

They say they've received several tips, but so far, no arrests have been made or suspects named.

And as long as the killer remains on the loose, neighbors live in fear.

Nadine Eagan, who works at the convenience store right next door to Dedert's Furniture said, "I have been shaking and getting nauseous, because I keep thinking, this happened in the middle of the day, right next door.  It's just scary."

Lucy Johnson, who also works at a business nearby said, "Hopefully they'll get whoever did it soon.  I think we'll feel a little better once we know who."

The District Attorney's Office has asked Governor Riley for an extra $5,000 to add to the already $11,000 reward.

If you have any information, call Dothan Crimestoppers at 334-793-7000.
