It happened July 4th last year at a West End computer sale.
Rain or shine, the sidewalk sale under the Woodall Rodgers Freeway, near Field Street in Dallas, opens for business.
Organizer, Peyton Weaver, makes the rounds, talking to vendors.
But there’s one that he will never forget – Dale Orsburn, so he set up a memorial with pictures and flowers for his friend.
“Everybody misses Dale. There’s not a day that goes by that no one thinks about him. Very good person and I will miss him,” Weaver said.
Dale was a friend who was killed in a drive-by shooting.
“[He] was trying to make a living to support his family, just a good person, who had no enemies and then he’s down here having a good time, with his friends and bingo,” said Weaver.
July 4th weekend, last year, someone fired a gun near the event — the bullet hit Orsburn.
The 58-year-old father and husband died at the scene.
His murder remains unsolved.
“To see a life ended so tragically and so senselessly. It is hurtful,” said Lt. Craig Miller.
Miller said detectives have nowhere to turn.
“We are up against a stonewall right now. We have no leads. This case has grown cold,” he said.
He hopes the $20,000 reward in the case will bring in fresh tips.
“Sometimes, it only takes one spark. It takes one bit of information to get our detectives to get that ball rolling,” Miller said.
It’s the closure Orsburn’s friends and family are waiting for.
“They’ve got $20,000 on this man’s head and hopefully that will loosen up some tongues. Somebody will rat out this guy,” said Weaver.
