Honor Flag Returned to Family of Murder Victims

Posted:
MILLSBORO, Del. - An honor flag that was found on the side of Route 13 two weeks ago was reunited with the family it belonged to Friday morning.

Darrell Dill found it, and reached out to WBOC to find the owners.

 "I opened up the contents to try to hopefully find a name card and unfortunately there wasn't one," he said.

On Friday the 13th the flag was reunited with the family of Roland Cashwell Jr., who was in the army, 48th Battalion, and is buried at the Veteran's Cemetery in Millsboro.

"I'm very happy and relieved on my part," Dill said. "I've had it in my house for about two weeks now and everyday I look at it and I wish somebody would call because rightfully it's not mine."

Cashwell passed away peacefully this May at the age of 63.

Though the owner was found, it turns out Cashwell's brother and sister-in-law were murdered in 2012, and now questions are being raised by surviving family members as to why the flag went missing and if it may have something to do with those murders.

Michael Emory and Christina Evick were convicted in the murders of 76-year-old Harvey Cashwell and his wife Carolyn Cashwell in their Greenwood, Del. home.

The murderers are now in jail, but losing the flag has churned up some concern for the Cashwell family. Members said they are unsure of exactly how the flag went missing, but hope it wasn't under suspicious circumstances involving the murders.

Even though they are now being forced to remember the murders, the family said they are extremely grateful to Dill for doing his part.

WBOC spoke with Delaware State Police about the missing flag concerns and the information is being sent to the homicide unit for further investigation on possible connections to the 2012 murders.
