The 2012 unsolved stabbing death of 76-year-old Cora Campbell in her Rock Hill home will be explored in Saturday’s episode of the TV show “Cold Justice.”
Campbell was found stabbed to death in her home on Dec. 14, 2012, a week after she buried her 88-year-old husband.
Still no one has been arrested in connection with her death, Capt. Brent Allmon of the Rock Hill Police Department said.
Terrance Staley, who worked odd jobs for Campbell, was arrested in 2012 after he admitted trying to take $600 from her bank account four days before Campbell’s death. Allmon said when Staley pleaded guilty in 2015 that Staley had been a suspect in Campbell’s death. Staley pleaded guilty to financial card fraud and was sentenced to five years in prison. He denied any role in Cambell’s death in court in 2015.
Never miss a local story.
Allmon said he reached out to “Cold Justice” with several cold cases in hopes of getting new leads.
“Sometimes it’s good the more sets of eyes you get on something,” he said.
Allmon said he hopes the show will lead to people coming forward with more information.
“I think (the show) opens the case up, gives some background on Ms. Campbell, on her life,” he said.
The team involved in the show met with the victim's family earlier this year, said Lovine Moss, one of Cora Campbell's sisters.
“We as a family hope this will help bring justice for Cora,” Moss said.
