Seek Justice for our son and Marine, Zach Gamble who was murdered on American soil!

      JusticeFor ZachGamble

Help seek justice for Zach Gamble, his family and friends, and find who is responsible for the heinous crime.

On Sunday, March 25, 2012, our son Zach Gamble -- a former Marine who served our country with two tours in Iraq and the loving father of a 7-year-old son -- fell victim to a heinous crime, an aggravated attack that left him in a coma and on life support for two weeks.

Our son, Zach Gamble, lost the battle for his life on Sunday, April 8, 2012, elevating the crime committed against him to murder.  His killer remains at-large.

As we grieve Zach’s loss, we also seek justice in his honor. However, in order for justice to be served, we need answers.

We need answers to questions, like: On the Saturday night prior to the attack, Zach attended a birthday party in the Concord Crossing apartment complex where his body was found – an altercation ensued between he and another individual -- Who was the altercation with?  Why, if the police know who stated there was an altercation, has no one from the party come forward about what that altercation was about?

What is known to our family and his many friends is that Zach, one of the strongest, most compassionate people that we have ever had the pleasure of knowing, was taken from us.

Thus, please join us in calling upon the Cobb County Police Department to continue their investigation and to find out who Zach Gamble’s killer is.  Help us find justice for Zach Gamble.

AJC March, 28 2012: Cobb County police are trying to figure out how a former Marine who served two tours of duty in Iraq was seriously injured after an altercation at a party, Channel 2 Action News reported.

Zach Gamble underwent emergency brain surgery at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta and has been intensive care, fighting for his life, since the incident early Sunday morning at the Concord Crossing apartments.

Police became involved when they received a 911 call from a taxi driver to report an injured man in the parking lot.

“Apparently, she was backed into a space in that parking lot and as she pulled out, she felt something with the vehicle,” Sgt. Dana Pierce, a Cobb County police spokesman, told Channel 2. “She went a few more feet, stopped and discovered the body as she apparently ran over it or ran beside it.”

Police suspect, however, that Gamble’s most significant injuries were not caused by the taxi.

“What we do know is, he was at a party on Saturday evening into the early morning hours of Sunday morning, and at some point, there was some type of verbal altercation that took place. That was shortly before that 911 call was received,” Pierce said.

Partygoers heard something, but no one saw what happened in the darkness.

Gamble, who Channel 2 said worked at a local company and has a 7-year-old son, has been unable to tell police what happened.

In a phone interview with the AJC, Pierce said, "There was some type of verbal confrontation -- a lot of loud talking and yelling going on -- and from that point on there was a gap in time" when Gamble was injured.

Pierce asked anyone with information about the incident -- and specifically, what happened from 5 a.m. until 6 a.m. Sunday, when police received the 911 call -- to call the Cobb County police's Crimes Against Persons unit at 770-499-3945.

      This family is entitled to answers surroundingg the death of their child. The police need to perform thier job to the fullest of their abilities. We pay their wages. If it does not affect you, it seems as though it is ok to ignore this tragedy. This is so untrue and would not be acceptable if it had happened to someone that was loved by you Please please help find justice for this family that struggles with this senseless loss..

      This whole Traythug payback thing is OLD. It sickens me to hear of a REAL AMERICAN HERO being murdered by ungrateful, welfare recieving ghetto mutts and NOT being told on a national level by our crook-coddling liberal media.
