LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. — Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers needs the public's helping in solving the murder of a Lehigh Acres teenager.

Crime Stoppers says just before 1 a.m. on August 14th, detectives responded to 56th Street W after receiving a call of a male who had been shot.

That's where they found the body of 19-year-old Charles "CJ" Wallace.

According to Crime Stoppers, it is believed that the suspect knew Wallace and could be familiar with the neighborhood.

Because 56th Street West is a dead end street, investigators believe the suspect did not randomly drive through the area.
