CHARLESTON COUNTY, SC - In July 2002, a Berkeley County family woke up to news they thought only happened to other people. One of their family members was murdered on the job.

"On the news they were saying there was a robbery, and possibly someone was dead," Frank Caddell remembered.

It was the early morning hours of July 16 when a trucker called police from the Hess Express on Ashley Phosphate Road. He couldn't find the gas station attendant inside.

Glenn Caddell, Frank's father, worked part-time at the store. He picked up extra shifts at night. When detectives called Frank and his sister, they knew the worst was true.

An intruder stabbed their father to death. Detectives found his body in the freezer of the gas station.

Eleven years later, his memory is fading.

"I have a 15 going on 16 year old daughter who barley remembers my dad," Frank said." I have a 10 month old son who never met him and who will never meet him."

For those who knew and loved him, the pain is relentless.

"He was my older brother, and he was supposed to be around forever," Denise Scott said.

Glenn was the oldest of four children. His sister, like most of the family, still lives in the Macedonia area. After all these years they've held onto the newspaper clippings from his murder and hope his killer will be found.

"Every day you want to know why," Scott said. "What was the point? I just don't believe someone could do this and hide it for eleven years. They had to have talked."

In a message to the community, the family makes a plea.

"You're going to have to face what you've done. If they told somebody give this family peace."

The Charleston County Sheriff's Office handled the investigation.
