“Missing Teen Jabez Spann was living only 453 feet from where the body of Travis Combs was found“. Cold-Case Expert Sheryl McCollum Digs into Sarasota Missing Jabez Spann Case Claims She Walked 453 Steps From Jabez Home to Combs Murder Scene, Gee So Did I in Sept. HERALD TRIBUNE SARASOTA, by Carlos Munoz. A national crime-fighting publication has taken up the case of missing Sarasota teen Jabez Spann. CrimeOnline published a story Thursday about the 15-year-old, written by Atlanta Cold Case Research Institute director Sheryl McCollum, who interviewed the family and a private detective who has volunteered his time to investigate the case. Spann was last seen Sept. 4 walking on 22nd Street.
While the Sarasota Police Department said it has received about five tips since the reward for information on the whereabouts of Spann was raised to $50,000, they are not calling the investigation a cold case. McCollum interviewed Spann’s mother Tawana Spann and private detective Joseph Randall about the case and its ties to the murder of 31-year-old Travis Combs. The story portrays the missing teen’s mother as a hardened, street-wise woman who is honest about her life and the time she spent manufacturing drugs, read more here.
Atlanta’s Cold Case Investigative Research Institute director, Sheryl McCollum, dives deep into the case of missing teen, Jabez Spann: I like to walk the scene to understand the area. It’s 453 steps from Jabez’s home to the alleged murder scene. The view is unobstructed and wide open. The homes are fairly close together. Everyone knows each other in the neighborhood. Somebody saw. Somebody knows. The area where is phone last pinged is sufficient and troubling. by Sheryl McCollum, Contributor January 25, 2018.
Gee I wonder if Atlanta’s Cold Case Investigative Research Institute director Sheryl McCollum knows how to spell plagiarism? Back in September 2017 I went to the crime scene in Newtown. From surveillance today Tuesday 9/26/2017 in Newtown near 22nd Street and 23rd Street, it was observed that there is an unobstructed view from the house on 23rd Street where Jabez Spann was staying to the street corner where Travis Combs was murdered near 22nd Street and Palmadelia Avenue, shot in the back, on 8/28/2017 at about 9:20 p.m. Jabez Span was staying on 23rd Street just two houses from the corner of 23rd Street and N. Orange Ave. It is very possible that if Jabez Spann was home Tuesday night on 8/28/2017 that he could have seen someone shoot Travis Combs or at least see a car speed away onto N. Orange Ave from the shooting that he recognized. It is only 453 feet from the house where Jabez Spann was staying on 23rd Street to the street corner where Travis Combs was murdered near 22nd Street and Palmadelia Avenue, see the original article click here.
