The 1990 murder of Deep Creek resident, Sharon Gill, has been solved. The killer, Roland "Rollie" Davis Sr. 67, is currently on death row in the Chillicothe Correctional Institute in Ohio. Davis murdered an elderly woman in Ohio in 2000.

During the investigation of this case, the Charlotte County Sheriff's Cold Case Team obtained sworn testimony placing Davis at the Gill home prior to her murder working on a landscape crew.

In 2020, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Biology section in Tampa identified three DNA profiles from an item in the Gill home that link Davis to the murder of Sharon Gill.

The Cold Case Team is currently working with 20th Judicial Circuit State Attorney, Amira Fox and her Cold Case Homicide Unit to review the case, make a formal charging decision, and prepare the case for prosecution.

We are asking anyone who knew Davis or any of his friends and/or associates to contact the Cold Case Team.
