COLUMBUS (Steve Levine) -- More than a decade after a convention services contractor was shot to death in his west Columbus warehouse, police still search for his killer.
Leonard “Frank” Wilson, 73, was gunned down November 18, 2001, moments after he entered his warehouse office on McKinley Ave.
“He always went down early Sunday morning, like clockwork,” said his wife Diane. “Whoever had been watching him knew he would be there around 8:00 a.m., so when he opened the door they would shoot and kill him.”
A computer contractor, who was repairing electronics in the building at the time of the shooting, was tied up but left unharmed. Police have said he is not connected to the homicide. Police still have few leads or suspects in connection with the early morning shooting.
“It’s just kind of a tragic situation, that nobody seems to be able to do anything,” said Diane.
The suspect is said to have worn a hoodie that covered his face. Anyone with information is asked to call Columbus Police at (614) 645-4545.
