The family of a man who was shot and killed more than a year ago is offering an $11,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for their loved one’s murder.
Ryan Trent was shot on Ellington Parkway during the early morning hours of Sept. 28, 2016.
The 29-year-old was found dead inside his white Chevrolet Silverado after it ran off the roadway and into a tree line at Briley Parkway.
Police initially thought Trent was killed from injuries sustained in the single-vehicle crash. A gunshot wound was discovered by the medical examiner’s office and it was determined as his cause of death.
“There’s never going to be any closure to this, even when we do get the person responsible – it’s just going to give us peace of mind to know that that person is going to be convicted of our son’s murder,” said Glenn Trent, Ryan Trent’s father.
The $11,000 cash reward is being offered until October and is in addition to the $1,000 reward offered by Crime Stoppers.
Anyone with information on the cold case is urged to call 615-74-CRIME.
