NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A grieving widow said she refuses to let her husband’s case go cold after he was killed on Christmas.
Chris Spaunhorst was shot to death while driving on I-24 near Nissan Stadium. Metro police are calling it a potential road rage incident.
Police have since released video of a black Kia Optima. The suspected shooter is believed to be inside the car firing multiple shots into Chris’ driver side window. The killer is still not in custody.
“That’s why I keep talking, why I keep discussing it, because I want to save someone else’s family from going through this,” Stephanie Spaunhorst said.
Stephanie has filtered through comments on social media and even received her own tips that she handed over to law enforcement.
“The smallest little details help to see the bigger picture,” Stephanie said.
Stephanie released new pictures to News 2 that show the damage from the bullet holes. However, Stephanie said she found a sliver of hope last week while cleaning out her husbands truck.
“When I got his stuff out on Friday, the rest of it, his Bible was there. So, I know he’s okay, it’s just not enough to make me okay all the time,” Stephanie said.
Stephanie is planning a candlelight vigil at her church, The Lord’s Friendly Mission, in Madison on Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 6 p.m. The church is located at 915b Old Hickory Boulevard.
