Lee Anderson

Case Open since 2007.

On 11-10-2007, Lee Anderson (36-years-old) was found deceased in his residence located on Peanut Lane in St. Helena. The cause of death was determined to be multiple gunshot wounds. Anderson spoke with his girlfriend and others late morning but was unable to be reached by the early afternoon. He was found later that evening when friends checked on him at his residence.

Through the investigation, it was learned Anderson dealt marijuana and other illegal narcotics and items found inside his residence supported this finding. At the time of his death, it was believed Anderson may have been in possession of a large amount of drugs and cash, making robbery a likely motive.

Persons of interest were identified and interviewed, although no physical evidence linking them to the crime was uncovered. As with the vast majority of drug related homicides, this investigation revealed questionable witnesses and various rumors leading investigators in many different directions. Physical evidence collected during this investigation is still being evaluated in the hopes improvements in forensic technologies will establish a link between suspects and the crime scene.
