For more than three decades the families of two Mid-Michigan men have waited for justice, and now they’re hoping that someone with information will come forward.

Charlie DeSpain, 22, and Steve McDonald, 23, were found shot to death in a vehicle in Flint in April, 1978.

Witnesses told police between 2:30 and 3:30 a.m. a two-door, fastback style vehicle with a loud muffler was parked in the 3600 block of Term Street. In front of that vehicle was a maroon colored Chrysler.

Witnesses went on to say a short time later the fastback style vehicle sped off with its headlights off.

About 8:30 a.m. neighbors found the two men shot to death in the front seat of the Chrysler.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward up to $2,500 for information leading to the arrest of the killers.

If you have any information, call 1-800-SPEAKUP. Or Text CSM and your tip to CRIMES.
