Murders Revisited

By Anna Ditkoff | Posted 10/24/2008

Joel Bradley, a 39-year-old African-American man, was beaten to death at a bus stop in the 700 block of Cumberland Street on Oct. 22, 2006. On Dec. 6 of that year, Donavan White, a then-17-year-old African-American man, was charged with Bradley's murder, after being arrested in North Carolina the month before. White pleaded guilty on Jan. 24, 2008 and was sentenced to 25 years in prison.

On Oct. 28, 2006, two men entered the house of Arnilo Handy, a 30-year-old African-American man, in the 2700 block of Tivoly Avenue. The men wielded a shotgun and demanded money. During the robbery, Handy was fatally shot. Dean Carter, an African-American man who was 20 at the time of the shooting, was indicted for Handy's murder but was found not guilty on all charges on Oct. 7, 2008.

A police officer on patrol in the 800 block of Cator Avenue on Oct. 31, 2006 saw Antonio Williams, a 32-year-old African-American man, run into the intersection of Cator Venue and Elkader Road and collapse. Williams had been shot in the stomach. Jonathan Savage, a 35-year-old African-American man, was found a block away shot multiple times. Both men died. According to police, the homicides of Williams and Savage have been closed by exception, as it is believed that the two men shot each other. At least one other 2006 homicide was closed under similar circumstances. Ballistic evidence proved that the two men shot to death on May 16, 2006 in the 1900 block of Eagle Street, Aaron Wilson, a 23-year-old African-American man, and Steven Wallace a 28-year-old African-American man, killed each other.
