This week’s story comes from East Dublin, Georgia and involves a man named Brian Samples who vanished from his hotel room and was later found deceased. According to his family, law enforcement hasn’t officially ruled Brian’s death a homicide. But his family is 100% positive someone murdered Brian. According to East Dublin Police Chief Bill Luecke, Brian’s death is questionable.

Brian’s last contact with his family was a text on July 6, 2019. Lori Duncan, who is Brian’s sister, said he texted that he had met up with some bad people. He was last seen alive on July 6 at the Red Carpet Inn in East Dublin where he had been staying. The family unsuccessfully spent many hours trying to find Brian. His body was discovered in a heavily wooded area in October 2019. Law enforcement confirmed Brian's death in November 2019.

Brian was a skilled carpenter and Christian. Although he had battled drug addiction, his sister Lori told me Brian was a good man who loved his family and God. Brian’s family is convinced he was killed by someone he knew. For this story, I spoke to Brian’s sister Lori Duncan. She told me about Brian’s battles with his addiction and his love for his family.

What happened to Brian? Do you know? Perhaps you can help his family by providing a tip. Even if you know something or have heard something that you think is insignificant, I ask you to please either share the tip with the East Dublin Police Department at (478) 272-6883 or you can contact the family through their FB page. The FB page is titled Brian Samples Missing. The family will share any tips with law enforcement.
