Sheriff announces arrests in 2005 homicide‏
Tuesday, April 24, 2012

 
RICHLAND COUNTY, SC - During a news conference today Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott was joined by the family of Antonio L. Corbitt who was brutally murdered in his home on October 27, 2005. The Sheriff announced three arrests in connection with the homicide.

Sheriff Leon Lott stated that on October 27, 2005 Antonio was inside his home, with his then 8 year old son, when Vernorris Dixon (DOB 7-22-75), Greg Isaac (DOB 1-17-87) and Travares World (DOB 5-16-77) kicked in the front door of the apartment. Sheriff Leon Lott stated that the trio, armed with handguns assaulted, robbed and shot and killed Anotonio Corbitt. The Sheriff added that Dixon, Isaac and World planned the crime and brutally killed Antonio in front of his 8 year old son.

Sheriff Leon Lott stated that following the incident, forensic evidence was recovered and processed – investigators interviewed family and friends and continued to follow up on leads. The Sheriff added that over the last six years investigators have continued to review the case but in February of this year a fingerprint match broke the case. The Sheriff stated that new comparisons of fingerprints from the scene returned an AFIS match to one of the suspects. Subsequently, the Richland County Sheriff’s Department Cold Case Unit conducted a series of interviews and charged Isaac, Dixon and World with criminal conspiracy, robbery, burglary and murder.

Sheriff Leon Lott stated that all criminal cases are very complex and sometimes take time to develop leads or make arrests but that the families and community deserve to know the truth about what happened. To that end the Sheriff added the Department will not rest until those responsible for any crime are brought to justice.

Sheriff Leon Lott praised the work of Sheriff’s Department Laboratory Staff, Cold Case Unit and Fugitive Task Force who all worked diligently to bring closure to the victim’s family
