COLBERT COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – State crime statistics show crime is slightly decreasing in the Shoals.  However, law enforcement agencies say there are several high-profile cold cases they still need help solving.

The death of an elderly man inside his home shook Tuscumbia to its core last August.

Dozens of tips flooded the police department after Elbert Davis was found beaten to death.  The one-year anniversary is approaching, and authorities say the trail of clues has gone cold.

Also in August of last year, police say a pawn shop on Woodard Avenue was burglarized in Muscle Shoals and dozens of guns were stolen.  Police worry these weapons may end up in the wrong hands.

This week’s Shoals Area Most Wanted comes from the Franklin County Sheriff`s Department.

Investigators want Kyle Britton on warrants for failure to appear and forgery.

Next detectives say Jory Wood’s probation has been revoked, and authorities want him back behind bars.

Christopher Trapp also violated his probation guidelines and the judge revoked his probation, too.

If you know where any of the people may be, or can help law enforcement piece together evidence to crack these cold cases, call the Shoals Area Crime Stoppers tipline at (256) 386-8685.
