On Tuesday, October 7, 2014, Memphis Police Department officers assigned to East Raines Station responded to the 200 block of Sullivan.  A decomposed body was discovered inside a vacant home that was being prepared for sale. 

 

The victim was later identified as Nina Cook (28).  Ms. Cook was reported missing by family members on September 25, 2014.  She had actually gone missing weeks earlier.  

 

Evidence recovered at the scene led investigators to believe Nina Cook was brutally murdered.  On February 9, 2015, Shelby County Medical Examiners ruled Nina Cook’s death as a homicide following extensive forensic testing of evidence recovered at the scene.

 

This murder is being investigated by Memphis Police Department’s Homicide Bureau.  To date, no arrests have been made.  Investigators continue to piece together a timeline between Ms. Cook’s last conversations with friends or family and the day she was reported missing.   Citizens with information about this murder, or who may know who’s responsible, are asked to call CrimeStoppers at 901-528-CASH (2274) or Homicide Bureau at 901-636-3300.

2/12/2015 - HOMICIDE- 4835 N. Winchester Square (Twin Oaks Apts)

On Saturday, February 7, 2015, approximately 11:15 p.m., officers assigned to Memphis Police Department’s Ridgeway Station responded to a shooting at 4835 N. Winchester Square (Twin Oaks Apartments).  Officers found a 47-year old male with critical gunshot wounds.  The male was transported to Regional One where he died shortly after arrival.  

 

The deceased has since been identified as Essic Woodard.  His death has been ruled a homicide by the local Medical Examiner’s office.  Essic Woodard was able to communicate with officers before succumbing to his injuries.

 

A second person, a 22-year old female, was also transported with a non-critical gunshot wound.

 

The preliminary investigation reveals that an argument began shortly before at least two males opened fire.  Woodard was struck by gunfire as he approached his apartment.  Investigators do not believe he was the intended target.  The female was struck as she was arrived at the complex.  No known relationship existed between the deceased and the female.  After the shooting, the suspects fled in a dark colored vehicle.

 

No arrests have been made.  This case is being investigated by MPD’s Homicide Bureau and remains very active.  Investigators need information from anyone that has knowledge of this murder or knows who is responsible
