Friend of elderly murder victim speaks out

Posted by: Mario Hendricks - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Montgomery Police are investigating the city's 15th murder of the year. They say it appears that robbery was the motive.

81 year-old Loyd Seymour was found stabbed to death in his home on Clarke Street in west Montgomery just off Rosa Parks Avenue.

"It is a shame, its so sad, very sad."

For the people that knew homicide victim Loyd Seymour, this news was the last thing they expected.

"I didn't have the least idea something like this would happen but you never know," said Mable Green.

Mable Green and Loyd Seymour have a son together.

Green says Seymour was in poor health and their son checked in on him daily. He made his last round by his father's home after they heard the bad news.

"My son says he didn't have any money...wallet empty," added Green.

Friends and family that knew Loyd Seymour say the fishiest thing about the investigation was that Mr. Seymour always kept his windows and doors locked. For them, this means that the person responsible probably knew him well.

Now friends and family are left to wonder why their loved one was targeted in such a violent crime.

Anyone with information in regards to this case is asked to call the Montgomery Police Department at 241-2651, the Secret Witness Line at 262-4000 or Crime-stoppers at 215-STOP.

    If you take a stroll on the beach, chances are you might need to watch your step and it isn't because of the sea shells. A strong onshore wind has been pushing large jellyfish to the shore. These bigger jellyfish are called cannon ball jellyfish. Luckily, these jellyfish do not sting, but we may see more stinging jellys sooner than usual.
