Crimestoppers offers reward for suspects in double homicide
BOONE COUNTY - CrimeStoppers is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect or suspects in a double homicide last weekend near East Mexico Gravel Road.

An employee of a company doing asphalt work on East Mexico Gravel Road found Richardson about 75-feet from the road and contacted emergency officials just before nine in the morning. The body of Long was found by a sheriff's canine unit a few hours later in a field about 150-yards west of where Richardson's body was found.
Anyone with information about these homicides should contact CrimeStoppers at (573) 875-TIPS. All calls to CrimeStoppers are held in strict confidence and a person does not have to provide their name to collect the reward.
