New lead reopens Berkeley County cold case

Posted: Updated:

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) – A New lead in a 25-year-old Berkeley County cold case may finally bring answers for the family of a murdered 5-year-old.

Justin Turner of Moncks Corner went missing in March of 1989. Two days later, investigators found his body just feet from his home inside of a camper that belonged to his father and stepmother.

Officials said at the time that the camper had been searched the day before finding the boy's body.

After an autopsy, investigators revealed that the boy had been sexually assaulted and strangled.

But investigators were never able to put blame for the murder on anyone and the case's trail slowly went cold as the years passed.

However, that all changed when officials say someone gave them a tip.

"A new name or a name was introduced to us and we're checking on it, but I can't comment any further on that," said sheriff's office spokesman Dan Moon Monday evening.

Moon asks anyone with a tip that could help solve Turner's murder to call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
