Private eye enters Elaine Nix investigation
by Ken Stanford


GAINESVILLE - The family of Elaine Nix of Gainesville, whose body was found in northern Gwinnett County more than five years ago, has authorized a private investigator to assist in locating any information about her disappearance on September 20 1999.

Elaine’s body was located in an industrial park near Rest Haven near the Hall-Gwinnett county line nine days later. Her last known location before disappearing was a pay phone at Zack's Food Rack on Candler Highway south of Gainesville.

“The first thing that I want to emphasize,” said Hal Lowder, Jr., the owner of Eag
"I am just assisting the family in trying to keep the case at the forefront of the public’s memory."
Hal Louder, Jr.

le Watch Investigations in Gainesville, “is that the local agencies investigating the disappearance and death are doing all they can to solve this case, and are very competent in doing so. I am just assisting the family in trying to keep the case at the forefront of the public’s memory."

Lowder said it's possible someone may come forward with some information that they thought has already been reported.

"A lot of times, people may think they saw or heard something, and the police already knew about it or they may know something that they think is insignificant," Lowder said. "Any information that I may gather will be immediately reported to the proper law enforcement authorities (and) I urge anyone that has any information to contact the Gwinnett County Police Investigations Division at 770-513-5300.”

“The main concern of the family and me is that the community has not forgotten the disappearance and death of Elaine.”

Lowder can be contacted at 770-287-7694 or eaglewatch@bellsouth.net. More information about the case is posted on Eagle Watch Investigations' Web site.

Slain teen's family takes case to talk show
By RICK LAVENDER
The Times


The frustrating lack of answers in the 1999 slaying of a Hall County teen will make national television this morning.

Becky Nix, the mother of Jacqueline Elaine Nix, and family friend Jennifer Boyd are scheduled to appear on the "Montel Williams Show" (WSB-TV, Channel 2) at 10 a.m. with psychic Sylvia Browne.

In a segment taped in December and featuring questions from the crowd, Nix said Browne gave her the name and initials of a man the psychic said killed her daughter in September 1999. Browne also said that Elaine, 18, didn't know her killer, Nix said.

Nix, who lives in Gainesville, didn't recognize the name but didn't want to give it or the initials Tuesday, saying she hadn't seen the segment and didn't know what it will include.

She acknowledged, though, that she's searching. "After five years and not knowing anything," Nix said, "I'm desperate for answers."

Nix also hopes today's segment gets people talking, "because we're not going to let it rest."

Investigators say Elaine Nix made a late-night call from a pay phone at a Candler Road convenience store Sept. 21, 1999.

Then she disappeared.

Workers found her body Sept. 29 at an industrial park near Buford, two miles from the Hall County line.

An autopsy revealed no obvious injuries or signs of sexual assault. The death certificate lists the cause of death as undetermined, Becky Nix said. The case, headed by Gwinnett County authorities, is unsolved but active.

Becky and David Nix, Elaine's father, have struggled with the mystery.

The Montel Williams Show was a step prodded by Boyd, Becky Nix said. The results "floored us," she admitted.

"I just kind of have a big question mark about it," she added. "I don't know. Time will tell, I guess."

The Nixes also have enlisted a Gainesville private investigator, Hal Lowder Jr. Lowder, who retired 13 years ago as a fire investigator with Hall County, said he's basically working for free and trying to help the family.

He said he hopes to sift through talk that laces the case, "and see if somebody's running their mouth or if there's some legitimacy to it."

Lowder is skeptical of the psychic's tip. In deference to the family, however, he said he'll follow it "like any other lead."

He said he'll be watching Montel Williams today. Any significant leads, Lowder said, will be given to Gwinnett investigators

Nix family consults noted psychic for help in solving murder
By Scott Kimbler



UNDATED - The family of murder victim Elaine Nix have consulted a psychic on national television as to circumstances surrounding the five year old unsolved investigation.

Elaine's mother Becky and best friend Jennifer appeared on the Montel Williams show on Channel Two Wednesday morning to consulted noted psychic Sylvia Browne. Browne said Nix did not suffer in death.

"She went immediately because she was strangled." Browne said.

Browne also said Nix
"This guy is freckled and thin, I would say even skinny,"
Sylvia Browne

knew her killer and gave a description.

"This guy is freckled and thin, I would say even skinny," She said. "And wears baggy clothes."

After missing for nine days, Nix was found in a wooded area of north Gwinnett County in 1999, a cause of death was never determined by investigators.

xx Mystery, pain still haunt Nix family
« Reply #22 on: Sep 25th, 2005, 08:22am »

In a little less than three months, Elaine Nix would have turned 25 years old. But six years ago, someone or something saw to it that she would never reach her 19th birthday.

On Sept. 29, 1999, Nix was found dead in a wooded area at an industrial park in Buford, two miles from the Hall County line. Her body showed no signs of rape or torture.

Family members and friends plan to meet at 7 p.m. Thursday at Memorial Park Funeral Home to hold a candlelight vigil in her memory, an annual gathering since the teenager's mysterious death.

"Elaine was and still is one of my best friends and this year marks six long years since her murder," Jennifer Boyd, one of Nix's closest friends, said in an e-mail. "Family and friends still don't know anything surrounding her (death)."

Nix disappeared after midnight Sept. 21, 1999. She was seen last at a pay phone at Zack's Food Rack on Candler Road in South Hall. Authorities say phone records indicate she spent nearly an hour on the phone with her former boyfriend, Bobby Millwood of Cleveland.

Elaine's 1986 Toyota Celica was found later that night at the convenience store with the keys in the ignition and the engine still warm.

After her body was found, an autopsy revealed no obvious injuries or signs of sexual assault. Nix's cause of death still is undetermined.

"How can we go on?" asked Elaine's father, David Nix, three years ago. "Part of us is gone."

Six years have passed and no solid information has turned up to lead investigators to a possible suspect or cause of death.

Sgt. E.T. Edkin with the Gwinnett County criminal investigations division still takes calls on the case to date, but says there has been nothing significant in recent years.

"No new leads," he said with a sigh. "I still take sporadic calls on it but they haven't helped us any."

Edkin said the last call came in some time in July. He even got a Teletype on a possible serial killer from LaGrange, but he hasn't heard anything about that recently.

"We've had plenty of suspects, but there are no new ones," he said. "It's considered a cold case now. When leads come in we will look into it, but it's not an everyday investigation."

That hasn't stopped Becky and David Nix in the search for their daughter's alleged killer. A reward fund was created soon after Elaine's death, reaching $10,000 at one point.

But as years passed and the investigation became almost stagnant, some foundations pulled money out of the reward fund. Boyd said $5,000 is left in the fund for anyone with information that leads to an arrest in Elaine's death.

"Elaine's family and friends have had a really hard time dealing with all of this," Boyd said. "Her parents have almost lost everything they have and they don't have the money to hire a private investigator or put any more money up for the reward fund."

Hal Lowder, a private investigator with Eagle Watch Investigations in Gainesville, has volunteered to assist with the case. Lowder, a former fire investigator with Hall County, was returning from Louisiana last week and could not be reached for comment.

Boyd and Becky Nix also attended the "Montel Williams Show" last November looking for answers from psychic Sylvia Browne.

Becky Nix said following the show that Browne gave her a description and name of the man who may have killed her daughter, but she said she didn't know the name.

Edkin said last week that Browne's information did not lead to anything new, but he said another psychic e-mailed him after the show aired with his own theory of what happened.

Although there have been no answers to Elaine's death, family members and friends still hold on to the fact that somebody may know something.

"Awareness is vital and we want to let everyone know that Elaine is important to us," Boyd said.

xx Unsolved death haunts family
« Reply #24 on: Sep 30th, 2005, 05:33am »

By MATT STEWART

Elaine Nix's family and friends let go of about 50 balloons Thursday night at Memorial Park Funeral Home. Six years ago, they were forced to let go of her at age 18.

Close behind the skyward balloons followed prayers, many asking why the Gainesville teen was taken so soon in life.

"We want some kind of closure," said David Nix, her father. "It's an everyday thing you've got to bury in your mind."

Those questions and prayers have remained unanswered since Sept. 29, 1999, when Elaine Nix's body was found behind an industrial park in Gwinnett County, two miles from the Hall County line.

She disappeared eight days earlier after leaving home to call her former boyfriend, Bobby Millwood of Cleveland, from a pay phone at Zack's Food Rack in South Hall.

Her car was found at the Candler Road store with keys still in the ignition. More than a week later, her body turned up.

The cause of death still is listed as undetermined. There was no indication she was raped or beaten.

In what has become an annual event since the teen's mysterious death, family and friends gathered Thursday to hold a candlelight vigil at her gravesite.

David Nix said the yearly meeting brings some peace, but the lack of answers in his daughter's death continues to haunt those who knew her.

"There is a killer out there, and someone knows something," said Jennifer Boyd, one of Elaine Nix's closest friends.

"(Elaine) deserves to rest in peace and her family and friends deserve closure."

Boyd read a poem titled, "If Tears Could Build a Stairway." Faith Hill's song, "There Will Come a Day," played while memorial candles were lit.

"I don't know if this case will ever be solved, the way it looks," said Elaine Nix's mother, Becky. "We just have to keep her alive in our hearts."

Gwinnett investigators say calls about the unsolved murder still come in sporadically, but no new leads have developed.

David Nix, who still has his daughter's photo on his van, said as recently as two months ago a man came up to him with information about her death.

The man, who David Nix would not identify, told him he saw four unidentified men drag away the teen at Zack's Food Rack.

That information has been turned over to authorities, but it hasn't led to any suspects, David Nix said.

"I know somebody has seen something, they just aren't talking," he said.

A reward fund created soon after the teen's death remains at about $5,000.

Hal Lowder, a private investigator with Eagle Watch Investigations in Gainesville, has volunteered to assist with the case.

Boyd and Becky Nix went on the "Montel Williams Show" last November looking for answers from psychic Sylvia Browne.

Following the TV program, Becky Nix said that Browne gave her a description and name of the man who may have killed her daughter, but she has said she didn't know the man.

xx For the 6th year, a vigil for murdered Gainesville
« Reply #25 on: Sep 30th, 2005, 05:35am »

GAINESVILLE - Once again friends and family gathered at Memorial Park Cemetery to remember Elaine Nix, the 19 year Gainesville woman whose 1999 Gwinnett County murder remains unsolved.

Once again, for the 6th year in a row, there were balloons, candles, songs, prayers and tears at dusk on the gentle slope at her gravesite.

Jennifer Boyd said she and her friend's family still need closure, still need justice.

"There's somebody out there that knows something and hopefully someone will come forward and if not soon, we'll just keep on trying and pus
"...hopefully someone will come forward..."
Jennifer Boyd

hing for it and we'll never give up," Boyd said.

Boyd said exposure of the case on a syndicated national TV. talk show and the intervention of a psychic has generated interest; the key, Boyd said is to not let the public forget.

“I'm trying to get any kind of coverage on the case," Boyd added.

"We have been getting calls and some good leads, hopefully it will result in something we can turn over to the Gwinnett County Police Department."

An autopsy did not determine Nix's cause of death and investigators said it was a cold case.

Her family also authorized a Gainesville private investigator to assist in gathering information about her disappearance.

A spokesman for a home based missing person and unsolved crime support group says that there are at least five area-unsolved cases similar to the Nix case.

Jill Bennett with Angel Garden of Hope also believes publicity generated by the grave side vigil is a key to solving the case.

"Things like this right here bring attention to it and help keep it in the media and possibly get that one person who knows something to come forward, you know," Bennett said.

xx Cold case?
« Reply #27 on: Sep 25th, 2006, 08:58am »

By MATT STEWART
The Times



Elaine Nix's death still keeps Hal Lowder awake at night.

Lowder, a private investigator with Eagle Watch Investigations in Gainesville, has volunteered his spare time the last few years to work on the Hall County woman's case.

"It's become an obsession for me," Lowder said of the 18-year-old's mysterious death seven years ago. "Every spare minute I get, I'm digging or calling somebody."

Family members and friends plan to meet at 7 p.m. Friday at Memorial Park Funeral Home to hold a candlelight vigil in her memory, an annual gathering since the teenager's death.

Nix vanished about midnight Sept. 21, 1999. Her naked body was found eight days later in a wooded area at an industrial park in Buford, two miles from the Hall County line. Her body showed no signs of rape or torture.

An autopsy later revealed no obvious injuries or signs of sexual assault. Nix's cause of death has not been determined.

She was last seen at a pay phone at Zack's Food Rack on Candler Road in South Hall. Authorities say phone records indicate she spent nearly an hour talking on the phone with her former boyfriend, Bobby Millwood of Cleveland.

Her 1986 Toyota Celica was found later that night at the convenience store with the keys in the ignition and the engine still warm.

Lowder, a former fire investigator with Hall County, said he has not given up on the case as so many others have.

"Not until I die or until something comes of it," he said.

Lowder still gets two or three calls about Nix's death each month. Some are nothing, others "nutcases," he said. And about every psychic in the world has phoned him.

He's even got a fresh lead that's being pursued. All information Lowder gets is turned over to Gwinnett County authorities, who have jurisdiction in the case.

Sgt. E.T. Edkin with the Gwinnett County criminal investigations division has said he considers Nix's death a "cold case," one that hasn't been an everyday investigation for several years.

But Lowder and others don't want anyone to forget. That's why he's still investigating and why Nix's friends, like Jennifer Boyd, hold a vigil for the teen each year.

"The big thing is the community tends to forget from time to time," said Lowder, adding that the death was never a high-profile case because Nix's family wasn't as wealthy as others involved in death investigations. "Somehow she fell through the cracks."

A reward fund created soon after her death reached $10,000 at one point. But as years passed and the investigation stalled, some foundations pulled money out.

About $5,000 is left in the fund for anyone with information that leads to a conviction in the death.

Boyd and Nix's mother, Becky Nix, attended the "Montel Williams Show" in December 2004 looking for answers from psychic Sylvia Browne. Nothing definitive was given.

Nix's father, David Nix, said at last year's vigil that they want "some kind of closure."

"It's an everyday thing you've got to bury in your mind," he said.

Lowder said he is focusing this year on the area where Nix's body was dumped. The area has been a dump site for nearly a decade and those possibly responsible for the teen's death may have been familiar with the area.

"I think that the people in the Buford/Rest Haven area might give us a lead," Lowder said.

He's also pushing for billboards asking for additional information about Nix's death and he's even pitching the story to talk show host Geraldo Rivera.

Becky Nix said last year she wasn't sure the case would ever be solved.

"We just have to keep her alive in our hearts."

xx Fake confession raised hopes of solving murder
« Reply #29 on: Jan 24th, 2007, 07:21am »

By STEPHEN GURR

A letter purporting to be a confession in the unsolved 1999 slaying of a Gainesville teen was taken "very seriously" by Hall County Sheriff's investigators before being dismissed as a hoax.

The letter, mailed earlier this month to a person whom the writer believed to be a friend of the late Elaine Nix, briefly gave her family hope that the cold case might be solved.

"This just brought back a ton of emotions for them," said Hal Lowder, a private investigator involved in the Nix case. "The family's pretty upset.

"They're more than seven years into this, thinking they finally had something, and they're let down by what amounts to a sick joke."

Nix was 18 when she vanished from a Candler Road convenience store on Sept. 21, 1999. Her nude body was found eight days later in an illegal dump behind a Buford industrial park.

The letter was received Jan. 11 by a person who has no connection to the case. The intended recipient was a friend of Nix's with the same last name.

In graphic detail, the letter purports to be a confession to the crime, written by a prominent Hall County businessman. The letter also implicates two other area men.

Hall County Maj. Jeff Strickland said the letter was "an attempt to discredit" the prominent person named. Authorities have not identified who wrote the letter, but believe it is someone who holds a grudge against the person named.

The letter does not appear to contain any details of the case that would be known only by someone with intimate knowledge of the crime, Strickland said.

"We initially took it very seriously, but we quickly determined it was unfounded," Strickland said.

He said the author of the letter, if identified, could face forgery and mail fraud charges.

"We have questioned a person in connection with it, but at this time we still have not named a suspect," he said.

The letter was one of the few new leads followed in a murder investigation that has grown cold in recent years.

Gwinnett County police are investigating the murder, while Hall County authorities have jurisdiction in the kidnapping.

Gwinnett police spokesman Cpl. Darren Moloney said to his knowledge, there were no new developments in the case.

Lowder feels certain that someone not directly involved in the murder has information that would prove useful.

"It's frustrating, because somebody out there knows who did it," he said. "I feel like more than one person knows about this crime. Whatever happened that night, somebody had to talk."
