Crime Watch: Kendrick Chapman

Cass County, Mich. Thirty-four year old Kendrick Lamar Chapman was a blacksmith and artist and did his work out of a workshop located on his property at 66783 Kessington Road in Calvin Township, Cass County, Michigan.

On Sunday evening, June 24, 2007, Kendrick left a phone message for a female friend, and he was never heard from again.

The next morning, a delivery truck arrived with a load of steel. The driver found Kendrick Chapman lying on the floor of his workshop in a pool of blood. An autopsy determined Kendrick died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Thursday on Crime Watch, Kendrick's mother, Pam Chapman, joined us to talk about how they've been coping.

"What we would like now is for the person to come forward and we would like to have some closure in the justice system," Chapman said. In our hearts we'll never have closure."

If you have any information, you can leave an anonymous tip to Crime Stoppers at (574) 288-STOP or 800-342-STOP.
