Jorge Insignares, 62, was found shot to death on April 16.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -
A tax day carjacking that lead to a cold blooded murder in south Nashville remains unsolved, so Metro police are asking citizens for help in getting a violent killer off the streets.
According to Harriette Bias-Insignares, her husband 62-year-old Jorge was an artist, an athlete and a loving husband.
"I really lost my right hand. Lost my right hand," Harriette said.
She told Nashville's News 2 that on April 15 Jorge dropped her off to do their taxes at an H&R Block office just off Welshwood Drive.
Some time between Noon and 1 p.m., investigators said Jorge is carjacked, while Harriette is inside, and forced to drive less than a mile away to Jonquil Drive.
He was found shot to death inside his car the next morning.
"It appears that it is a robbery that went extremely bad," the detective explained. "Someone saw something. We believe he is familiar with this area. We believe he has a violent past.'
Bernard Broddy lives across the street from where Jorge's body was discovered shot to death.
"There was a car there. I thought it was stolen. People walked past the car all day long. With people walking back and forth I thought, apparently there's nothing in the car. It is unusual for someone to park on that side of the road," Broddy explained.
Police said that a black man wearing a white t-shirt was seen running from the car the day of the crime.
There are no cameras in the parking lot at the Elysian Fields on Nolensville Road, the shopping center where the H&R Block is located.
If anyone remembers anything that might help detectives get the murderer off the street, they are urged to call Metro police at 615-862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 615-74-CRIME where tips can be anonymous and possibly qualify for a cash reward.
