Twelve years after a Charlotte County young man was brutally attacked and killed, Crime Stoppers is still asking for the public’s help solving this cold case. Today marks 12 years since 20 year-old Alex Teehee was murdered in Charlotte Harbor. Alex was violently assaulted and left for dead in the roadway in the middle of the night. A passerby found Alex clinging to life and called 911 for help.
Although he was transported to the hospital, Alex passed away from his injuries. At the time of Alex’s death, Crime Stoppers asked for the public’s help. And now, a dozen years later, they are still reaching out to the community for answers to help solve Alex’s case.
“Over the years, the names of several suspects have been on the radar, however there has never been enough evidence to proceed with the prosecution of those involved in Alex’s murder,” said Trish Routte, Crime Stoppers Coordinator. “But despite the time that’s passed, it’s never too late to step up and ensure that the person or persons responsible for Alex’s murder pay the consequences for their actions. Although nothing will bring him back, Alex’s family, his friends, and most particularly his two sons, deserve to see justice served.”
Anyone with information on the murder of Alex Teehee is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
