Fiancèe Of Murder Victim Wants Closure After Seven Year Investigation

A woman has been waiting years to close a tragic chapter in her life. But it's hard for her to move on. That's because the killer who took her fiancè, Waddell "Craig" Robinson, away from her is still on the loose.

Robinson was a business owner, a faithful man and one who was committed to his community. He owned a store at 62nd and Ames. He was killed inside the business in broad daylight.

"We don't know if it was someone trying to rob the store because nothing was missing," said his fiance, Katrina Jones. "He still had money on him, had money in the register."

All of this happened seven years ago. So far police have made no arrests in the case and it frustrates Jones, who was weeks away from marrying Robinson.

"I don't know, I may have crossed paths with this person and now even know it, so it's very frustrating," she said. "What if they not only took Craig's life, what if they took somebody else's life? Because they're like, 'I've done it once, why can't I do it again?'"

Omaha police officers say a homicide case may grow cold, but they're never closed. Sometimes, police need more information to make an arrest.

"But without that help from people in the community that have information about what happened, it makes the cases sit," said Sgt. Teresa Negron with Omaha Police.

Katrina wants anyone with information to come forward. She's even willing to make a deal with the person who took so much away from her.

"I'm at a point where I just want the closure. If it means forgiving that person for what they did, then I forgive them for what they did," she said. "But I want them to come forward and say what they did so our family can have that closure."

If you have information about Robinson's murder, call Omaha Police at 444-7867. You can remain anonymous.
