Harry Fripp

Case Open since 2008.

On 04-07-2008, Harry Fripp (19-years-old) was stabbed to death by three suspects behind apartment units at Sandalwood Terrace in Hilton Head.  During daylight hours, witnesses observed Fripp running from a white in color Mercedes Benz occupied by three black males.  Fripp disappeared behind one of the buildings and the three black males exited the Mercedes and gave chase.  Shortly thereafter, the witnesses saw the three males emerge from behind the building where Fripp had run, get back into the Mercedes and flee the area.  Witnesses then found Fripp had been stabbed multiple times and summoned Emergency Medical Services.  Fripp was transported to the hospital, where he died a short time later as result of the stab wounds.

Suspects were identified through investigation and physical evidence links at least one of the three to the crime scene.  Based on the type of evidence and lack of other more probative evidence, prosecutors declined to charge the three suspects in the murder of Harry Fripp.  Physical evidence is currently being evaluated in this case.
