22 year-old Christopher Spivey was murdered inside his own home on March 14, 1995. The case is cold and detectives hope someone will come forward with new information.
By all accounts, Spivey was a normal, hard-working young man. He had no trouble with the law and he wasn't into drugs. When he didn't show up for work one day, his coworkers went to look for him.
"He was the 2nd shift manager at the McDonald's at Douglas and Seneca," says Wichita Police Detective Tim Relph. "He was a good employee by all people's recollection."
Spivey's body was found at his home in the 200 block of N. Elizabeth.
"He was really a low-risk gentleman," Relph says. "He certainly didn't have any kind of lifestyle that would make him any higher risk than you or I."
Relph says there was no sign of forced entry at his home. There was also no sign of robbery. There were indications inside the home that more than one person was involved in the brutal murder. He had been beaten and shot.
"Anytime more than one person gets involved, that's more than one person that knows about it," Relph says. "Those people have a tendency to talk and, over the years, sometimes people who saw something as a youth might be more inclined to talk about it as an adult."
