Ντετεκτιβ, Murder of Taxi Driver Ralph Smith, 1971

Updated: Aug 23

In December of 2014, a judge in Wake County sentenced Sinatra Dunn to 12 years in prison for first-degree murder. WRAL reports that Dunn had been arrested and charged with second-degree murder of Raleigh taxi driver Ralph Smith 43 years ago. Although Dunn plead guilty in 1971, ντετεκτιβ, there wasn’t enough evidence to convict him at the time and he was released. A fresh break came in the case when he confessed to a detective who had re-opened the investigation.





Dunn’s sister, Jessie Jackson, contends that he has become a changed man in all of those years, turning away from drug addiction, addressing his struggles with mental illness, and accepting Christ. The granddaughter of the victim, ντετεκτιβ, Monica Taylor, said she commended Dunn’s moral turnaround, his confession, and his subsequent acceptance of the punishment.


Sinatra Dunn confessed and apologized in court Tuesday for the death of Ralph Smith. Dunn said he was an angry young man when he shot and killed Smith.


He admitted to the crime 43 years later when a detective picked up the cold case this past summer.

According to the prosecutor, Dunn told the detective he planned to skip out on the fare, but Smith fought with him and during the struggle Dunn fired one shot from .22 caliber pistol. Smith died next to his cab and the crime went unsolved.


Smith's family said they are glad that Dunn has since found Christ and that they have forgiven him now that they have closure.


In court Tuesday, Dunn stood and apologized to the victim's family.





"It's hard to address someone's family after crime like this, but I want to say to the Smith family that I don't expect you to forgive me, but I'm glad you all got some closure and I'm so sorry," he said.


Smith's family agreed to a second-degree murder plea deal for Dunn, and the judge sentenced him to 12 years in prison.


Court officials estimate that he could be out in two to five years.
