10K Reward Offered For Info On 2016 Murder

As Redding Police investigators continually review cold cases and petition the public for leads, they’ve again released information on 67-year-old Edwin Phillips. At about 11:15PM the night of August 17th, 2016, callers reported shots fired at 3032 Bechelli Lane, the building that houses Pluto’s Car Stereos and Don’s Sandwich Shop. Officers arrived 15 minutes later and found 67-year-old Edwin Phillips suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to Mercy Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. In surveillance footage Phillips can be seen entering the business with an unknown man and then leaving a short time later just before the shooting. The suspect is tall and stocky and he was wearing baggy long shorts and possibly a tank top. A photo of Phillips is on the KQMS Facebook page. A reward of $10,000 is available for anonymous tips at scsecretwitness.com or 243-2319.
