Crime Stoppers announced a reward increase for information that helps them track down a Germantown woman's killer.

Family and friends of Susan McDonald joined Crime Stoppers at 2 p.m. Thursday to release information about the increased reward incentive.

McDonald was shot and killed in a friend's Cordova driveway August 1 during an attempted robbery.

Her friends and family raised $36,000 through GoFundMe and spent hours rallying support by tying purple ribbons to mailboxes in the community. The family donated $25,000 of that money to the Crime Stoppers reward fund. The reward now sits at $26,000.

A neighbor's surveillance video shows a car being driven away from the murder scene, but so far police have not been able to identify who may have been driving that car.

"We have put out the best video we have," said Deputy Chief Mike Ryall.  "if an individual sees this video and knows that vehicle they'll recognize it."

MPD has not said whether it has any leads, but investigators are hopeful the increase in money could lead them to the person responsible for Susan's murder.

"Know something and think it's not important, but it could be that one little thing that helps MPD fit the whole thing together," said Crime Stoppers Director Buddy Chapman.

If you know anything that might help police with the investigation, call Crime Stoppers at 901-528-CASH  (2274), text 'AWARD' to 274637 or visit
