Police to canvass neighborhood for clues

May. 21, 2013 @ 03:47 PM

The Greensboro Police department, the High Point Police and the Guilford County Sheriff’s will be knocking on doors to get any information they can about the death of a local teenager.
At 5:30 p.m. today, officers will canvass the community in the High Point City lake area in hopes of gaining information about the death of Dorien Daymon Jackson.
Jackson, 18, went missing on Jan. 10 after leaving his home on Tangle Road in High Point. His body was discovered on March 3 in Lake Townsend in Greensboro. An autopsy shows that Jackson was shot in the back of the neck and that his death has been ruled a homicide.
Greensboro Police have no leads at this time on who may have killed Jackson.
“We do this regularly in response to homicides where we need the public’s assistance in generating leads that can help us find who is responsible for the deaths of these people,” Danielsen said. “The other reason we do this is to reassure residents that we are thoroughly investigating the homicide, that we won’t tolerate the crimes and that we are doing everything possible to keep their neighborhoods safe.”
Police will meet at shelter six at High Point City Lake Park for a briefing and to receive team assignments before the canvass.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Crimestoppers at 336-373-100, or by texting 274637 with the keyword badboyz.
