Craig Roberts


Craig was found shot to death in his home. When Craig's brother Steve was 1st notified about this, he was told that the police thought it was a suicide.
Craig was shot twice in the head while he was in his bed asleep. (you heard me right...twice!)
Steve Roberts has been very active in Craig's investigation. He has pulled all the resourses available to him and spent countless hours, days, weeks, years, etc. trying to find out what happened to his brother. (He may have ideas, but a little justice would be nice!)
I'm sure you have seen his name in the paper or seen him on tv.
I have met Steve and talked to him several times and I think he is a very kind man.
He is outspoken, for sure but he is also very honest.
The price that he has had to pay because he will not give up is huge!
He is fortunate to have a wonderful wife, Shelly that supports him in everything he does.
I have also had the pleasure of getting to know Craig's son Mark and his wife Samantha.
They are 2 of my favorite people!
Both are outspoken, and both have a great sense of humor.
It has been far too long for this family. SOMEONE KNOWS SOMETHING and needs to come forward.

Why with a taped confession and details given that could only have been known by someone in the same room when the murder took place, has there been no arrest? News 9 has it, WPD has it and the Craig's sister has it.

I think a massive picket of the Courthouse is in order here. What other evidence do they need? They have a taped confession more or less and still have not taken the case to the Grand Jury. Come on!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who wants to picket? I am ready!

Please come to the vigil we are having for Craig on Friday, Sept. 19, 2008 at 7pm. It will be held at the gazebo in Wellsville. We will also have a balloon launch. The more support that Craig's family gets on this, the better chance they have of getting something done with this case.

I think you have a JFK case here. You will never find out the truth until all involved are dead. It has never made any sense that they have a taped confession and still no charges filed on this person. Whether this person is telling the truth or not, a jury should make this decision. Our lady of justice sheds enough tears for a new river in Columbian County!

I too,have had it with the Wellsville Police Departments inability to perform their job. I have already contacted the FBI,a state senator,and the attorney generals'office.Someone has to have the authority to police the police in this and other small towns and counties. Anyone interested in signing a petition to get the state to put a police regulatory commission in place, please contact me at carolelea41@yahoo.com.
My heart goes out to the Roberts family and all the families of the murder victims of Wellsville and Columbiana County. They will never get justice because of the ineptitude of the police agencies in this county.

This is Craig's niece, they do have a confession and they dont even want to touch the case. It's not really wells illegal police it's the person in Lisbon. And they do need to look at Ronnie Tice and his brother Daniel. There were 5 people in the house they may have not pulled the trigger but they are all involved abs just as guilty as the person who did it. I think it's total bullshit that they all live thier lives off of his money like nothing happened while his family suffers everyday over it know his murderers are still out there. I hope everyone sleeps well thinking thier son could be haning out with them thier daughter dating them. GROSS!!! But they will all get what they deserve one way or another. I am completely proud to be a Roberts!! We love you uncle craig

I know there were more than one person involved!! There were three and a couple extras that were there chris' two boys. I believe they both know what happened. They are all guilty for being there. It just sucks his family is still suffering everyday over what she did and it's not fair. I hope she is haunted everyday of her miserable life!! Thanks have a nice day!!

I love how u guys keep blamming the two BOYS! Key word boys! They lived with their mother! So yea they were there! If u wanna point fingers how about doing it tk the ADULTS! yes there is a s on that! First look at the thing that spent his money and her brother livez in that house at this moment! Im so tired of hearing look at the boys! Look at the thing that slept in his bed ecery night!

The WPD darn well knows who was the murderer who pulled the trigger that killed Craig. I have heard that they were paid off by the mother, who's son shot him and she wanted to keep it quiet so as to save her son's life. That's what happened to the money and yes it makes sense to blame a BOY now doesn't it. A mother's love is stronger than the truth. So, there you have it!!! Blame the Boy for doing it and the Adult for covering it all up!!!

Well if u have proof of that then blame u to for sitting back with your mouth shut till u want to put it on here like u know something. If what u say is true then shame on u for not doing anything about it.

That taped confession everyone goes on about was made by a mental incompetent who changed his/her version of what happened throughout their statement. First saying they'd been told who did the shooting, than saying they were present when the shooting took place, than saying they had committed the shooting, and on. It did more damage than good. Completely useless.

The taped confession IS what happend for the most part. And SHE did not make the tape,... in fact she had no idea she was being recorded by the Wellsville PD and Craig's sister. And the Wellsville PD had no idea that Craig's sister was recording the conversation. Yes, several others were involved including other members of the house. There are several other unanswered questions that may never be answered. As time goes by, the lack of effort to continue to investigate and make the arrests further points to an overall coverup. The first 24 hours of the investigation if you look real close could point immediately to a coverup of sorts. How does the primary investigators borther-in-law become the primary suspects attorney? Why did the prosecuter not offer to assist in the interview process knowing that WPD had no experiance in interviewing someone in a homicide? Better yet, why did the Sheriff's Office not get involved? I dont think this murder case has been given the "proper" attention.
