The Disappearance and Murder of Dominick Brown-Hill

Source: CBS News

Dominick Brown-Hill vanished at the age of 21 on March 22nd, 2012. The young man lived in Penn Hills, Pennsylvania at the time of his disappearance. Reports state that he was dropped off by a jitney around 5 or 6 PM in front of a home where he was staying in Althea Hills. Dominick was never seen alive again. 

A 2012 report on Dominick's disappearance states that he called the owner of the home where he was staying - his friend's grandmother - the day after he was last seen. During the phone call, he reportedly told his friend's grandmother that he would return that evening. However, Dominick never returned, and his phone was shut off a short time later. 

Years passed without any news on Dominick's disappearance. Then, in late February 2017, human remains were found in a garbage can in the 900 block of Washington Street. Those remains were later identified as that of Dominick Brown-Hill. He had been murdered; killed by a gunshot wound to the head. 

The garbage can that contained Dominick's body was discovered around 7:00 PM on February 23rd, 2017. According to neighbors, the garbage can came from somewhere else - and had to have been placed on Washington Street the night before garbage day. This has led to several more questions in Dominick's case - especially because he had been missing for nearly 5 years at the time he was found. 

Upon the discovery of his body, Dominick's case shifted to a homicide investigation. Unfortunately, years have passed, and the case still remains unsolved. No suspects or persons of interest have been publicly identified.

If you have any information that could help solve Dominick's murder, please submit a tip with the Allegheny County Police Department.
