Po­lice re­lease sketch of ‘per­son of in­ter­est’ in 1980 Horry Co. mur­der

More than 35 years after an un­solved mur­der, Horry County po­lice have re­leased a new sketch of a per­son of in­ter­est in the case.

The per­son is pos­si­bly con­nected to the mur­der of Joann Colby. She was re­ported miss­ing on Sept. 15, 1980, and was found in her truck in the Con­way area after be­ing stabbed.

On Thurs­day, Horry County po­lice re­leased a sketch of the per­son of in­ter­est who uses the aliases of Vin­cent Gior­dano, An­thony (Tony) Gior­dano and Joseph McArthur. The sketch is what he was be­lieved to look like in 1980.

The man is an as­so­ciate of Sue Col­lie, who was charged as an ac­ces­sory to mur­der as an ac­com­plice in the case, Horry County po­lice spokes­woman Mikayla Moskov said. Col­lie has since died.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion about the per­son of in­ter­est is asked to con­tact the depart­ment at 843915-TIPS or [email protected]­rycounty.org.

De­tec­tive Jack John­son over­sees Horry County po­lice’s cold case unit and said each case is re­viewed and scored not only by solv­abil­ity, but the chance to get a con­vic­tion. Due to tech­nol­ogy changes, he said, it is good to re­view cases ev­ery eight to 10 years. Re­view­ing decades­old cases is an ef­fort to give the vic­tim’s fam­ily some an­swers.

“If you think you’re get­ting away with it,” John­son said, “we’re still com­ing after you.”
