SMYRNA, Tenn. (WKRN) – The family of a Smyrna fisherman who was murdered in October 2015 continues to seek justice.
Police said William “Gregg” Hawkins, of Murfreesboro, was fishing with his daughter when he interrupted a crime in progress and was shot and killed at the Mona Boat Ramp in Smyrna on Oct. 16, 2015.
Hawkins’ murder has yet to be solved.
His wife and daughters spoke at a media briefing Thursday where they pleaded for anyone with information about Hawkins death to come forward.
“He was amazing. I loved him since I was 18, so I’ve really not been without him, so this has been like hell on earth this last year, and I just want justice for Gregg. I just want justice,” said his wife Janet.
His family hoped electronic billboards in April would help bring in information about the unsolved case and is offering a reward of $50,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the murderer.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office at 615-904-3043 or Crime Stoppers at 615-893-STOP.
