i was looking through topix and seen people talking about the mario anetta murder in sunshine back in the 1980,s.just wondering if any one remebered when that man roy cox was murdered he was from sunshine to and was killed and it was never solved.if i'm not mistaking he had four kids and they never found out who killed him.ant that a little weird that two people from the same neighborhood get killed and it is never justified .it makes you wonder how they got away with it all these years?does any one remember who i am talking about .

big money was in on that two.they must to have been in the way of big money.it all comes down to money in cases like that.ever body worked on it could have been paid off.in the other hand any body could have found the answer to them murders.without training of the police force my opinion...

I dont think the two murders were connected in any way.

The Modus Operandi was completely different in each murder.

The Yennetta murder was a quick "Hit' type of murder.

The cox murder suggest that it was a murder filled with hate. To be stabbed that many times suggest that the murder knew the victim and committed the murder out of pure hatred. The Yennetta murder was a quick in and out. As if it was a Mafia hit. The

Even the weapons used were different one was a stabbing the other was a shooting.

Yennetta DID have children. Well he had a Son that much I am sure of becuase I went to school with him.

As for the Cox man I dont know if he had any children or not.

But regardless I too cannot fathom taking another persons life.(Except for maybe self defense) Life is precious to all and how someone could take life away from another person is beyond me.

Have a Good'un

It's been sooo long now and I for one am glad someone brought this back up. I didn't know him but remember hearing of the murder when it happened and people talking about how there was literally no investigation and how they felt there was a coverup somewhere going on. I don't know, but this should be interesting to see if anyone comes forward with information to reopen the investigation for Roy Cox and the other man too, just like a family member that posted for help in the Linda Hyden(sp?) murder that happened in VA and people started posting info.

And why wouldn't you (as a declared friend or family member) want people to come forward with possible evidence against/about the murder(s)?? That's just crazy. Of course those that were too young at the time of the murder wouldn't have information about it, but adults at that time could now provide helpful information if they can and will. If someone posts slanderous comments, let the family press charges if THEY want to, I'm sure they won't need someone to push them into it.
