NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — On Christmas Day, Chris Spaunhorst was shot and killed while driving on I-24 near East Nashville.

Nearly five months have passed and no arrest has been made. A reward of $15,000 is now on the line, encouraging anyone with information to come forward. 

“There is a lot on that car that stands out, the silver trim, how dark the tint is,” Stephanie Spaunhorst said.

Chris’s wife watches the released dash camera video dozens of times a day, memorizing every detail of a black Kia Optima. The suspected shooter is believed to be inside the car. 

“That’s all I know what to do, just keep sharing…You can see where he hit the wall, it’s tough because I know it’s senseless,” Stephanie said. “It could have been prevented.”

From memorials to reminders of him, Stephanie grips onto every memory.

“I got a tattoo in his writing…I wear his clothes every single day, I call his voicemail just to hear his voice.”
