Lottie Mae Webb was 67 years old living on Ridge Avenue by herself when she was stabbed to death. It happened on January 7, 2000. She lived in the front unit of the duplex.

Detective David Phillips with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department’s cold case unit says they responded to a call that afternoon.

“When officers arrived January 7th to check on her, they noticed that they found two different locations at the residence where it looked like someone had tried to force entry by broken glass,” he said.

Detectives say she had multiple stab wounds. Several items of evidence were collected from the scene. The unit is now resubmitting some of that evidence to the lab since DNA analysis and technology has changed over the years.

“We feel that we’ll get the results we need from the evidence that will help us identify the person responsible for this,” Phillips said.

They haven’t nailed down a suspect yet or determined if it was a random crime or someone that knew the victim. The Cold Case Unit also looked at the time of the month the crime occurred as a possible motive.

“It was also something that we considered that her being an elderly female it would have been time for her social security check to come. In a lot of times, we’ve had cases where people living in the neighborhood that pray on the elderly know that and it’s a possibility that the person responsible for this felt like the social security check had gotten there and maybe there was extra money in the house that time of the month,” he said.

Detectives are trying hard to generate new leads. They’re waiting to get results back from the lab and that could be the missing piece needed to solve this homicide. If you have any information on this case… please call the CMPD cold case hotline at 704-336-2358.
