SAVANNAH, GA (October 1, 2019) – Today Crimestoppers and Savannah Police Department announced a $100,000 reward in the 2002 unsolved shooting death of Randy Stevens.
Around 6 a.m. Oct. 10, 2002, Stevens, 42, was fatally shot outside his home in the 1900 block of Duval Street. Stevens, an employee at the city’s vehicle maintenance facility, was on his way to work when the shooting occurred. Cold Case detectives believe the shooting was possibly the result of a robbery.
Detectives thoroughly investigated the case, but no information was ever generated that could result in an arrest. It has since been taken over by the Cold Case Division.
At a press conference today, Crimestoppers announced that an anonymous donor had given $100,000 as a reward for information leading to an arrest in the Stevens case. If the money doesn’t result in information on the case, Crimestoppers will maintain the money in the tip fund so that other cases can be solved.
“Hopefully today’s anonymous donation will go a long way to providing an incentive for someone to provide information in regard to this case,” said Larry Branson, director of Crimestoppers.
“This is a very serious situation,” said Savannah Police Chief Roy Minter. “This is another example of how we never give up on trying to address and resolve these issues. I’d also like to thank the donor who is coming forward with a significant contribution that we think will continue to provide us with information that hopefully will lead to a successful resolution in this case.”
All tips sent to Crimestoppers remain anonymous. Tips can be forwarded to Crimestoppers by calling (912) 234-2020.
