Holly Fox Strickland

The Hall County Sheriff’s Office is reopening a 2014 cold case.

Investigators plan to reexamine the case of Holly Fox Strickland, a 32-year-old mother of two who was shot seven years ago behind her home in the 5500 block of Raintree Trace in the Oakwood area. Feb. 8, 2021 marked the anniversary of Strickland’s homicide.

New DNA testing is one avenue investigators hope they might use to solve the case.

“Holly’s family deserves closure, and whoever is responsible for her death should be held accountable,” Hall County Sheriff’s Office Investigator Michael Alford said. “I hope our ongoing efforts and renewed public awareness will accomplish that.”

Strickland was last seen by family in her home on Feb. 3, 2014.

“We’re asking that anyone who has information about Holly’s death or events leading up to it to please contact us,” Alford said. “No new detail is too small.”

Anyone with information is asked to call Alford at 770-533-7690 or email malford@hallcounty.org. To report information anonymously, call 770-503-3232.
