Murder, suicide possibly linked

Posted on Thu, Oct 24, 2013 at 11:09 AM

Detectives are looking into possible ties between a homicide on Savannah’s Southside and an attempted suicide in the Islands Precinct.

About 11:20 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to the first block of North Parkwood Street, where they found Justin Baldwin, 24, of the 400 block of West Montgomery Cross Road suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was transported to Memorial Medical Center. His condition has not been released.

At 11:30 p.m. the same night, Southside Precinct officers responded to an apartment on the 400block of W. Montgomery Cross Road, where they discovered Jessica Nowell, 24, who had succumbed to a gunshot wound.

The two cases appear to be related.

SCMPD Violent Crimes detectives continue to investigate. Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637). Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward. A confidential Tip Line also is open directly to investigators at (912) 525-3124.

  • Editor's Note: The new normal of crime downtown

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
