This week’s unsolved homicide goes back to February 26, 1982 in Atlanta, Georgia. The 39 year anniversary of Danny Stowe’s murder will be coming up in February and his family has no answers. For this story, I spoke to Lou Anne Carmichael, who was married to Danny. The couple had two sons together. Although Lou Anne has since remarried, she continues seeking justice for Danny.
Danny Stowe’s story goes back to a strip club called the Purple Onion that was once in Atlanta. He was playing pool with his brothers as he often did. On occasion, Danny would work the door and collect entrance fee money from patrons. On the night of February 26, 1982, Danny was spending time with his brothers. The man scheduled to work the door called off. Danny was asked to work the door, which he did.
During the evening, an unknown black man entered the Purple Onion and began ordering drinks. He asked if he could run a tab. He became angry after being denied. He was then asked to leave. The man left the bar and retrieved a gun. He fired into the club and fatally shot 28-year-old Danny Stowe. The killer then fled in a pristine Orange Nova with a black top. The Atlanta police secured the glass the man was drinking from. It had his fingerprints on it. They also retrieved the bullet used to kill Danny.
Unfortunately, the glass and bullet have disappeared.
Someone out there knows who killed Danny. Do you know who killed him? If you are listening to this story and know something, I urge you to call in a tip and help the Stowe family get justice.
