Dennis Gilliam, September 24, 2011

It’s been nearly 10 years since Dennis Gilliam was found shot dead in bed in southeast Memphis. He had been shot twice in the head in a case his family considered an assassination.

After several months a man was arrested in the shooting, but was later freed for lack of evidence, although he was found guilty of aggravated assault. The shooting occurred on Forsyth Drive.

Investigators have kept the case open in the hope someone will come forward with information that can lead to a murder prosecution.
