Clarksville Crime Stoppers Adds Two Cases to Cold Case List
The Clarksville-Montgomery County Crime Stoppers Program added two homicide cases to its list at a news conference at Building 1 of the Clarksville Police Department. Cold cases offer up to $5,000 in rewards for information leading to the arrest or indictment of the person responsible.
“When we talk about these homicides, these are people who were killed and their families and friends deserve to have answers and to have their day in court,” said Deanna McLaughlin, president of Clarksville Crime Stoppers during the October 5 announcement.
On October 8, 2019, Clarksville police responded to a call for gunfire in the 1140 Main Street area. Police soon found a 2002 Oldsmobile Intrigue in the driveway and had been shot multiple times with Johnson inside.
On October 6, 2019, law enforcement responded to a call at 706 Britton Springs Road to find Richardson lying on the ground with a gunshot wound and lacerations to his head. In reports from October 7, 2019, police said they had no idea what prompted the 911 call, but when they found Richardson they knew he would not survive his injuries. .
“Oftentimes law enforcement has an idea of who the people responsible are, but they need to have the information to make their case in court,” McLaughlin said. “That’s why it’s so important for people to have a bit of information, no matter how important they think it is to definitely point it out.”
If you have information about these crimes, please call Crime Stoppers at 931-645-TIPS, or go to www.p3tips.com and leave a web tip. All tipsters remain anonymous.
