    Monday marks 20 years since missing boy found dead

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's been 20 years since the body of 11-year-old Levi Frady was found riddled with bullets and dumped in the woods at the Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area in Dawson County.

    "His mother and sister reported him missing the day before his body was found," GBI Deputy Director Bahn Rich said. "They went out looking for him. He was at a friend's house. He normally rode his bike home. His family found his bicycle on Little Mill Road in Forsyth County less than a mile from his home, but they couldn't find him."

    Levi's disappearance and death sparked the creation of Levi's Call, Georgia's version of the Amber Alert.

    "It's hard to believe it's been this long," Rich said. "This is a parent's worst nightmare."

    Sunday, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation re-released two sketches of persons of interest in Levi's murder.

    "Those composite sketches came out of an interview with neighbors and people in the community," Rich said. "The first person of interest was seen walking down Little Mill Road. That's the last place Levi was seen alive. The second person of interest was seen at the same location Levi's body was found."

    Rich told FOX 5 News on Monday, the department remains hopeful that the case will be solved, but said the key to solving Levi's murder will be someone coming forward with information.

    "Someone out there knows something," Rich said. "We are asking you to please come forward with whatever information you may have because it may be exactly what we need to solve this case."

    20 years after his murder: Little Levi Frady's legacy lives on, through Georgia's Levi's Call

    Twenty years ago on Sunday, Oct. 22, 11-year-old Levi Frady had spent the day playing with his friends. It was getting dark, but Levi’s Forsyth County home was less than a mile away, and he and his trusty bike had made the trip dozens of times.

    Tragically, on this evening, Levi would not make it home. He was abducted, driven to a neighboring county, and brutally murdered. The next day, his body was found in a wooded area.

    Today, police are still searching for his killer.

    In the aftermath of the tragedy, law enforcement and emergency management officials, along with Georgia broadcasters, partnered with Levi's family to create Levi's Call, which is Georgia’s version of the Amber Alert.

    The first person in question was seen walking along Little Mill Road in Forsyth County at 6:30 p.m. on October 22, the day Levi was reported missing. He is described as a white male in his late 50's, with a scruffy, gray beard. He was wearing a faded blue baseball cap and walked in a stooped fashion.


    The second potential witness was seen in the Dawson Forest Wildlife Management Area. He is described as a white male, 45 to 55 years of age, clean shaven, 6' 0" to 6' 1" tall, slim build with white or gray hair. He was driving a 1980 to 1985 medium blue Toyota, 2-wheel drive, pick-up truck with a white camper shell over the bed of the vehicle.

    20 years later: Levi Frady case still unsolved homicide

    The search for Levi Frady started nearly 20 years ago to this day with the discovery of a red bicycle the color of a toy fire truck.

    His twin sister, 11-year-old Laci, found the all-too familiar single speed on Thursday, Oct. 23, 1997, off Little Mill Road — the day after Levi went missing. Laci and their mother, Marilyn Weaver, spotted it about a mile from the family’s home in north Forsyth County.

    The North Forsyth Middle School boy had left his Burruss Mill Road residence the day before, having told Weaver (then, Marilyn Parkman) he was going to do homework at a friend’s house. He was expected home at 6:30 p.m. Suspicion grew as the night wore on. Eventually, she contacted authorities.

    It was just a week before Halloween, and while kids Levi’s age in Forsyth were planning out their costumes, dreaming about candy and strategizing their Oct. 31 routes through local neighborhoods, the family of Levi Frady waited at home fearing the worst, yet holding onto hope their little boy would return to them.

    Instead, on a cold and windy Thursday afternoon in Dawson Forest, hunters discovered Levi’s body a few miles across the Forsyth County line —about 20 miles from his home.

    “It all happened here,” then Dawson County Sheriff Billy Carlisle told a Forsyth County News reporter Oct. 24, 1997. The wooded area off Ga. Hwy. 9 was not only a murderer’s dumping ground; it was the spot where Levi died of gunshot wounds.

    According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Frady’s homicide is still an unsolved case. The Dawson County Sheriff’s office, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office and the GBI Regional Office in Cleveland continue to investigate two decades later.

    Kim Williams, GBI special agent in charge in northeast Georgia, said that, to this day, leads still develop with the case.

    “We consistently work with [leads] and follow leads and talk with local agencies of Dawson and Forsyth County in an effort to find a resolution,” Williams said, adding that while there haven’t been any major breaks in the case “there have been substantial leads that have been followed and continue to be followed.”

    Added Williams: “The big takeaway is that GBI, Forsyth and Dawson all want to solve this case and hold someone responsible for Levi’s death, and we are interested in any information the public has … relating to the day he disappeared and when he was found.”

    Despite many interviews and tips, as well as a reward, the death of Levi Frady remains unsolved.
