Gulfport Murder Documentary to Air in September

Investigation Discovery will show a special on Karen Gregory, who was stabbed to death in her Gulfport home more than 20 years ago.

Murder in Gulfport will take viewers back to 1984, during the investigation into Karen Gregory's murder. The 36-year-old was raped and stabbed to death in her Gulfport home. 

In early June, a film crew with Investigation Discovery spent several days shooting reenactments of the days, months and years that followed Gregory's murder. Actors portrayed Lt. Larry Tosi Jr. and Detective Bill Brinkworth with the Gulfport Police Department, David Mackey, Gregory's boyfriend, and George Lewis, the man convicted of her murder.

Retired Lt. Larry Tosi Jr. and retired Detective Bill Brinkworth were also filmed and will appear in the hour-long documentary as they are today.

Tosi says the case has received local and national attention over the past two decades. "What's amazing is, there's still an interest after all these years." 

The murder investigation is part of the series Unusual Suspects, and rightfully so, the lead detective in the case arrested a St. Petersburg firefighter, neighbor and personal friend, George Lewis, for Gregory's murder.

Murder in Gulfport will air on Sept. 25 at 10 p.m. Eastern on Investigation Discovery.

Season 2 of the series Unusual Suspects premiers on Aug. 14 at 10 p.m. Eastern on Investigation Discovery.

Some people don't deserve the breathe, or your anger or your thoughts. He victimized Karen and those who loved her. The victim deserves your love, devotion and knowledge. Yes, Karen would be proud of many. The police dept. did get the job done. Persistance paid off even on goose chases. People were eliminated until one couldn't excuse his way away.

I think Peter was not examined closely enough.

If Karen is at peace why is her ghost so restless?

The bloody flowered Hawaiian shirt that was found on Karen Gregory's bed that might have belonged to Glenda Lewis should have played a much more prominent role.

Karen was my stepdads daughter and George is guilty.No one who was a fireman would be that scared or act that scared after seeing things he already has.He lied repeatedly over n over again. I hope they never let him out!!
