DALLAS T NELSON
The body of 23-year old Dallas T Nelson was found in Alton Park on Saturday morning, November 1, 2003.
Nelson was from Flintstone, Georgia in Walker County. Investigators say he was ambushed when he stopped his car near 4500 Cain Avenue at 45th Street.
Nelson tried to drive away but was shot several times. His Chevy Blazer ran off the road, across a gully and hit a tree. Nelson was then pulled out of the vehicle and tossed over an embankment.
Neighbors say they heard gunfire around 7:30 Friday night but no one called to report that to police. Officers found Nelson the next morning, when someone called to report the wrecked Chevy Blazer as a suspicious vehicle.
