MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Governor Bill Lee is offering thousands in rewards for information regarding three child murder investigations that have gone unsolved for months. Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich asked Lee to issue the state reward funds as her office seeks public tips in the cases.
Lee confirmed he would issue the rewards in a letter to Weirich on April 24.
Back in January, 10-year-old Jadon Knox was killed in a drive-by shooting in Orange Mound. He was taken to the hospital where he later died of his injuries.
Memphis Police Director Michael Rallings has pleaded for community members to come forward and offer information regarding these cases. No one has said a word.
Now, Lee is offering $10,000 for both information in both cases. He says in the event that multiple people come forward, the reward will be split.
