SAVANNAH, GA -

Nine years, that's how long one father has been waiting for answers in his son's death.

Captain Scott Corwin was shot and killed in Monterey Square May 29, 2004.  

The U.S. Army commander's killer still hasn't been found.

Greg Corwin lives in Pittsburgh, but comes back to Savannah this time every year to honor his son, and hope for some new evidence, and some answers.

Captain Scott Corwin was walking the square with his girlfriend when shots rang out, and he was hit.

Beyond that, very few details are known about what happened that night, or who may be responsible.

Greg Corwin asked for a meeting with Savannah police to talk about his son's case, and to find out what, if anything, detectives were doing to solve it.

"They were very honest with me which is all that we ask," said Greg Corwin. "They obviously don't have anything right now that's going to get it solved, but they have things they can work on to get it solved and they assured me that they are going to do everything they can."

"We never stop working the case," said Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Detective Kevin Grogan. "We are going to keep going, follow every lead we can. And anything that somebody may know, if they have been holding on to any information, anything that can help us, we're willing to hear."

If you have any information about Scott Corwin's murder, any small detail could help.

Just call Savannah-Chatham police or Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020.

There is up to a $15,000 reward for information that leads to a suspect's capture.
