MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) – Central Alabama CrimeStoppers is focusing new attention of five cold case homicides in hopes someone can help solve the crimes.
Each day over the last week, CrimeStoppers has showcased a different case in what it calls “A Week of Action Against Violent Crime.”
Each case is now in the hands of the Montgomery District Attorney’s Cold Case Task Force. Investigators are requesting information from anyone that may have information to help solve any of the cases by calling CrimeStoppers’ 24-hour tip line at 334-215-STOP (7867) or toll free at 1-833-AL1-STOP (251-7867). You can also download the P3-tips app, and all tips can remain anonymous.
Tips that help investigators solve a case could result in a cash reward of at least $5,000, and in one case as much as $35,000.
The oldest cold case involves the murder of Elizabeth Spence, who was just 27 when her body was found in early 1991.
On Wednesday, January 2, 1991, Spence was reported missing. Then Lafayette Police Chief Fred Lumpkin reported to the media, “For her to have gone anywhere without her family knowing about it was completely out of context.”
On Wednesday, January 9, 1991, Spence’s vehicle, a Daihatsu Charade, was found by Montgomery Police in the parking lot of a department store on Atlanta Highway. The body was discovered unexpectedly after the vehicle was turned over to the Lafayette Police Department for inspection of evidence in Montgomery.
$35,000 could be yours for helping solve this case, including $5,000 from CrimeStoppers, $5,000 from the State of Alabama, and $25,000 from Spence’s family.
