CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Charleston Police still don't know how Robert Snow, a district manager for local 7-Eleven stores, died a year ago. But they hope someone will speak up and provide some clues.
Snow disappeared May 23, 2012 after he was last seen at the 7-Eleven on Bigley Avenue, where he often worked. His body was discovered by boaters in the Elk River a few days later.
Chief of Detectives Lt. Steve Cooper said they know Snow planned to go to a job interview, but he never showed up.
"We're asking for people to speak up. We're asking for something that will help us," Cooper said. "We've never had enough evidence to charge anyone.
"But the case is not cold," Cooper said in a press conference Thursday at the police station. "We're working on it every week. It's an active investigation."
Detective C. Sharp is in charge of that investigation.
Sharp said anyone with information about the crime can send him an anonymous letter.
"Even if someone wants to restate a fact that they assume was given to the police, or any detail someone believes has importance to this investigation," Sharp said. "I believe if someone is holding out and doesn't want to talk about it, maybe they will write about it."
Nothing police have learned about Snow's background and activities has provides any information that would help solve his murder. Investigators know of no motives or no people who had any grudges against him.
"We've had several leads in the past year," Cooper said. "We're still following up on those."
Snow's vehicle and his cellphone were found in the Bigley Avenue area, in a parking lot along the river. Snow's body had been partially bound with duct tape, but Cooper said he couldn't give more details.
