Stacy Dillon was a 22-year-old college student living with his mother Judy Dillon in Cleveland, Tennessee. He commuted to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga where he was studying marine biology. According to the Times Free Press, “he kept to himself and only had a few close friends.” One night, while his mother was out of town, Stacy was shot in the face in their home. That was 1991. The murder weapon was never found and the medical examiner did not conduct an autopsy. (The Cleveland Police Department was in the middle of a federal investigation. The chief resigned six months after Stacy’s death.)
20 years later, in September 2011, the cold case was reopened by Lt. Mark Gibson who “believes he is getting closer to prove the killer was someone with whom Stacy Dillon was in a relationship. But he's not ready to make an arrest.” Cold Justice, which will air its own investigation on Friday, May 29 at 8pm on TNT, says Stacy "had to keep parts of his life a secret from his extremely conservative home town."
