KENNESAW — It has been a month since a west Cobb man was found shot to death in his driveway, and Cobb Police still don’t have a suspect.

The police continue to ask for the public’s help in identifying one.

“This is still an active ongoing investigation and they are continuously following up on some leads,” Cobb Police Officer Mike Bowman said.

He couldn’t say exactly how many people have been interviewed in the case regarding the death of 60-year-old Frank William Davidson, or the number of phone calls they’ve gotten with tips on it.

Davidson’s body was found on the driveway, under the carport of his home at 3591 Paul Samuel Road in west Cobb, which is located off Stilesboro Road about four miles southwest of downtown Kennesaw, at 7:45 a.m. April 22.

Police have said he was shot, but that’s all the information they’ve released in reference to the case over the last four weeks.

Bowman said detectives haven’t had enough evidence to arrest anyone.

“The problem is that we have no unbiased witnesses,” he said. “Everybody who (detectives) have talked to have some kind of ties to the victim and there have been biases.”

Bowman said he couldn’t answer other questions related to the case. He wasn’t able to release information about how or where on Davidson’s body he was shot, the number of shots fired or the type of gun that was used to kill him.

Meantime, neighbors are wondering why an arrest hasn’t been made.

“If it was a domestic dispute you think police would have already come up with somebody because there’s only a limited number of people that police could interview,” said Tom Lindsay. “You just hope it’s not a totally random thing because that’s when something could happen to just anybody.”

Lindsay lives off Justice Drive a little over two miles south of where Davidson was killed. He said he learned about the killing on Twitter.

“It’s not like this happened right next door to my home but given this area, (a murder) is not something that happens around here all the time,” he said.

Lindsay said neighbors haven’t been worried about their safety or if there’s a killer on the loose.

“I’ve been talking to my neighbors and they are all just kind of curious like I am,” he said. “We look out for each other and know who is in the neighborhood. But it’s still out of the ordinary.”

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call police at (770) 499-3945.
