February 13, 2003

Nashville Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of $1000 cash for clues called in to 74-CRIME that help solve this murder of twenty-three year old Reginald Witherspoon, brother of SEVENDUST frontman Lajon Witherspoon.

On Saturday, November 9 2002, Reginald Witherspoon was shot to death in the Parkway Terrace Homes area of East Nashville. At around 8:30 that night, he pulled onto Neill Street and met with three men at this point. One of these men climbed into the passenger seat while the other two men walked away. Reginald made a U-turn and headed back toward Smiley Street. When he reached the stop sign, the two men who walked off earlier returned to help the passenger shoot Reginald while he was sitting in the car. Reginald died at Vanderbilt Hospital a short time later.

These three men who fled the scene were described as male blacks in their late teens. Each man was wearing dark colored clothing and was of average height and build.

If you have information which might help metro police solve this 2002 murder of Reginald Witherspoon, call Nashville Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME. If the information results in the arrest and prosecution, you could be eligible for a cash reward of $1000.
