The Murder of Dorothy Donovan


Here is Dorothy Donovan, killed on June 23rd, 1991 in her home in Delaware.

From her son, Charles’ description, this is the composite sketch that was released to the media of Dorothy’s killer.


And finally, after 15 years, Charles Holden’s crazy story about a random hitchhiker who killed his mother proved to be true when Gilbert Cannon’s DNA matched back to Dorothy Donovan’s crime scene. Cannon, pictured here, was a career criminal and now spends his days in prison, having been sentenced to life without parole.
