Calvin R. Shafer

29-year-old Calvin R. Shafer was found lying on Ball Camp Pike on October 7th, 1983. He had been shot once in the base of the neck and once in the head. He was still conscious when he was found and said he knew who shot him, but did not say who did it. A trail of blood led to Shafer’s white frame house about 40 yards away. A witness who shared the house with him said that Shafer used and sold drugs. She claimed that someone came to the back door around 9:30 a.m. on Friday and that Shafer went with the person into another room and shut the door. She heard two gunshots and saw Shafer lying in the road with several people standing around him.
