Reward for 2016 Anderson unsolved homicide raised to $4,000


ANDERSON, SC (WSPA) – It’s been three years since police said a man was gunned down in a store parking lot in Anderson. With no suspects or even answer, the family is hoping the community will help them close the case.

On Tuesday morning, an old convenience store parking lot on East Whitner Street filled with detectives from Anderson Police. Each one hoping to crack Randy Smith’s case.

Investigators said it was in that parking lot on March 30, 2016 when a car drove by firing shots that killed Smith.

The car captured in surveillance video turned up stolen leaving police with little information and no suspects.

Over the years, Smith’s family has held vigils to remember their loved one, but now they are turning to the community for help as they increase the CrimeStoppers reward to $4,000.

“Why would you let a killer just roam the streets free for three years because it could be a family member of yours next because if someone kills once they will probably kill again,” said Gloria Smith who is Randy’s mother.

If you have any information about the case that may help investigators, you can call the Anderson Area CrimeStoppers at 1-888-274-6372.
