Brittany Booker Story: Crime Stoppers raises reward for Jackson’s arrest to $5,000

Crime Stoppers of Racine County announced Tuesday that the reward for information leading to the arrest of Terry Jackson in the shooting death of Brittany Booker has been increased from $2,000 to $5,000 thanks to the generosity of a private donor.

Just over two weeks have passed since police said Jackson shot Booker in his car in the early morning hours of April 24. Since then, the Racine police and the US Marshals office have been investigating to find him, but he continues to elude authorities.

Jackson has an ex-wife in Texas and family, his mother, specifically in Chicago, and he was driven to both locations after allegedly attacking Booker and another woman with a hammer on Feb. 27 and killing Booker last month. The women who transported him have since been arrested and charged with harboring or aiding a criminal.

Carmelita Walker and Alicia Sykes admitted to police they knew about Jackson’s attack on Booker and his ex-girlfriend in February, and they drove him to his ex-wife’s home in Texas. Diamond Hood told police that Jackson stayed with her in the days leading up to Brittany Booker’s death, and that the morning he allegedly shot Booker, she drove him to his mother’s house in Chicago.

Walker and Sykes were awarded cash bonds of $3,500 and have since paid them off and been released. Hood was granted $10,000 cash bond and remains in the Racine County Jail. Online court records indicate that the three women have not yet retained a lawyer and that their next court dates are in early June.

Anyone with information on Jackson’s whereabouts is asked to call Racine Police Investigator and U.S. Marshall Task Force Officer Mike Seeger at 262-939-2437 or Lt. Freidel at 262 -635-7761.

Those wishing to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 262-636-9330 or through the Crime Stoppers app.
