Chances are good someone in the public has vital information that can help the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office solve a Fort Walton Beach murder that happened one year ago. The OCSO has been continually working the case and has conducted numerous interviews.

That includes anyone who witnessed any suspicious activity in the area.

The 32-year old Matthews was shot once around midnight April 29, 2013 at Rene Lynn Apartments, 6 Woodham Street. Two men knocked on his door and then barged in after he opened it. Matthews was shot once and went out the front door behind the gunman before collapsing on the apartment threshold. He died later at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center.

The two suspects involved had their faces partially covered. One was described as a black male and the other as either a light skinned black male or white male. The pair was last seen running on the north side of the apartment complex.
