NASHVILLE – Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam today announced a $10,000 reward from the state for information on the death of Rashaud Singletary in May 2012 in Springfield.
“I encourage anyone with information in this case to contact the local authorities immediately so those responsible for this crime can be brought to justice,” Haslam said.
The state reward of $10,000 is for information leading to the apprehension, arrest and conviction of the person or persons who have committed, attempted to commit or conspired to commit the murder of Singletary.
On May 6, 2012, Singletary was shot in the back of the head in Springfield, and there was a large group of people present at the time of the killing. The Springfield Police Department investigated the case, and a suspect, Mandrekus Young, was indicted. The 19th Judicial District Attorney General’s Office determined, however, that further investigation was needed before the case can move forward.
John Carney, District Attorney General for the 19th Judicial District, requests that anyone with information about this case call Det. Terry Dorris of the Springfield Police Department at (615) 384-8422.
