Richland County, SC (WLTX) - Richland County deputies are asking for the public's help to find the person responsible for a murder from 17 years ago.

Sheriff Leon Lott re-released information Thursday on the murder of 65-year-old Jack Robinson, in an effort to develop new leads in the case.

On August 17, 1996, Lott says someone stabbed Robinson at the Rosewood Boat Landing at 611 Rosewood Drive. The victim was taken to the hospital where he later died.

Lott says Robinson and the suspect may have known each other, and it's believed the two may have had a fight over money.

Over the years, Lott says investigators have exhausted all leads in the case. At one point, investigators developed a sketch of what the suspect looked like at the time of the killing based on a lead. That image has been redistributed to the public.

Lott says the suspect would now be between the ages of 42 and 52 and is roughly 5'5" tall.

Anyone with information should call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC, or e-mail a tip in to You can also text information in by texting "TIPSC" plus your message to CRIMES (274637). Either way you choose, your identity will remain anonymous, and you could be eligible for a cash reward.
