Petitioning Representative G.K. Butterfield and 14 others

SBI, Northampton County Sheriff's and Seaboard, NC Police Departments: Immediate Call to Action Needed.....Arrest those responsible for the death of 17 year old Damon Markee Riddick.

The family and friends of Damon want justice for their loved one and until the murderers are brought to justice his mother, father, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents, neice, nephews, cousins and friends cannot and will not rest.


On October 26, 2012, our loved one, Damon Markee Riddick, was shot and killed after intruders entered his father's home in Seabord, NC.  He was only 17 years-old. 

Damon's killers still have not been charged for murdering our son, grandson, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin and friend. 

Damon was a fighter from conception.  His parents loss his twin, due to miscarriage, early in the pregnancy.  At an early age, Damon began sneaking his grandfather's tools to use while taking apart and repairing his mechanical toys.   He loved working on go karts, dirt bikes and remote controlled cars. At only 17 he had a bright future ahead of him with dreams of attending college and becoming an automotive engineer.  His killers stole that dream.

It's been twelve months and the Seaboard Police Department and Northampton County Sheriff's department have not issued warrants for the arrests of those involved in his murder. 

Please join us in calling on local and state officials to investigate our loved one's murder and prosecute those involved for the shooting and killing of Damon Markee Riddick.

I am writing to ask for a complete investigation surrounding the murder of 17 year old Damon Markee Riddick of Seaboard, North Carolina on October 26, 2012. It has been over two years and the family has no more answers than they did nine days after Damon's death. Damon was an unarmed 17 year old who was visiting his dad while his mom prepared for their move to a new home. The family deserves answers, a Damon deserves justice.

We ask that you use whatever legal powers you have to move this investigation forward. We cannot continue to wait for months and years on end while those responsible for his death walk free. Free to kill another innocent person.
