Cold Case: Pacific Grove man killed in 1995

PACIFIC GROVE, Calif. (KION-TV) Richard Coleman's family continues to post an obituary annually for their brother in hopes of someone coming forward with a piece of information that can help solve his cold case that is nearly three decades old.

Richard is described by his brother, Charles Coleman, as being a smart, funny guy who loved to roller skate.

On the night of March 4, 1995, police found Richard at his Pacific Grove apartment-- strangled and beaten to death.

That Saturday night he had visited After Dark and family says he was going to Doc Ricketts, where his car was parked. An anonymous person called and notified police that day from a nearby payphone and then vanished.

Charles said he thinks about his brother often and this past December placed an obituary for Richard in hopes of getting someone to come forward with information that could help police.

Richard died in his mid-twenties and graduated with a degree in interior design and was aiming to get his real estate license.

The Pacific Grove Police Department said the FBI is involved in Richard's case.
