Family Offers Reward for Info on Murdered Son

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND (WRIC) - It's been four months of anguish for George Redmon Senior after his son was murdered just steps away from the home where he grew up.

"Somebody knows they know but they keeping their mouth shut," he says. "He was laying flat on his back right about here and his phone was right there."

Junior, a long haul truck driver, had just arrived home for the weekend from Indiana.

The 28-year-old and a friend were in the front yard when his parents, sound asleep, heard gunshots.

"My wife started hollering ‘Junior, Junior, Junior.' We didn't see him at first and then we walked out."

Junior was dead. His friend, 29-year-old James Nash, had also been shot and killed.

Whoever pulled the trigger took off.

"What I don't understand is there's so many neighbors around here and they always out here but nobody seen a thing," he says.

Junior's dad says everybody loved his son, he liked to joke, and his nieces and nephews called him "dad."

His family is offering a $1500 reward to find the shooter as police search for leads.

"We're looking for that last little bit that's gonna help us push this over the edge so that we can arrest the people that did do this," says Det. Michael Gouldman.

Junior's dad hopes that happens soon.

"There's too much killing going on for no reason there really is and I don't know what else to say cause it gets me. It gets me."

Tragically, the Redmons had another son who was shot and killed 13 years ago.

That case also remains unsolved.

If you have any information on the murder of George Redmon Jr, call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000.
