PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Marking the second anniversary of his disappearance, the family of a missing Penn Hills man had a large billboard put on Washington Boulevard, near Hamilton Avenue.
They’re hoping it will help convince someone to come forward with information on what happened to then-21-year-old Dominick Brown-Hill.
“Personally, me, as his mother, I do believe he is deceased,” Brown’s mother said. “I do believe that someone knows where his body is; now it would be his remains. I just want to say, put yourself in my shoes.”
“On March 22, 2012, Dominick Brown-Hill went missing,” said Detective Venerando Costa, of Allegheny County Police. “We last know him to be in the City of McKeesport. From there, we don’t know his whereabouts. We hope somebody saw him, and knows something they can help us with.”
Dominick’s mother says she’s convinced her son has met with foul play. She said he was living a lifestyle he wasn’t raised to live.
“It’s not like he was a rich person, like he had a car. He didn’t have nothing, really, clothes on his back, shoes on his feet. Whatever happened to him, he didn’t deserve. Nobody has the right to take someone’s life,” she said. “I just want someone to help find him; if you’re afraid, call anonymously.”
Pittsburgh Crime Stoppers is putting up a $1,000 reward for information on this case. That’s in addition to the $5,000 offered by the man’s family.
The phone number for Crime Stoppers is 412-255-8477.
