Fundraiser in support of reward for information about Stephen Jeffries killer is set for April 26

Candlelight vigil will take place on May 1

Our news partner KCPQ FOX NEWS shares this news about an upcoming fundraiser for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer of Stephen Jeffries.

Do you remember what you were doing last New Year’s Eve?

Probably out partying or maybe you had a quiet night at home?

For Stephen Jeffries, it was the last night of his life. He was killed in the White Center area of Seattle at a party on 16th Ave. SW. The shooting took his life and wounded a woman. Now, Jeffries’ family is planning a fundraiser to raise money to add to the Crime Stoppers reward for information identifying Jeffries’ killer.

It's on Saturday, April 26th from 10am to 1pm at the Puerto Vallarta Restaurant in West Seattle. The 40 year old father of four was a City of Seattle employee for 20 years and a hard working good citizen.

A candlelight vigil will be held on the corner of the 9200 block of 16th Ave. S.W. from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm on May 1.

“Everybody speaks well about this guy,” says Ret. Det. Myrle Carner with Crime Stoppers of Puget Sound. “He shows up at this party last New Year’s Eve and for whatever reason the suspect in this case confronts him outside of the residence. We don’t know what took place exactly but the suspect produced a firearm and shot him multiple times. Jeffries actually tried to run to get help but collapsed in the street and the suspect took off.” Detectives think there were people there that night who are afraid to come forward and give them the name of who killed Jeffries.

That’s exactly why we have the Crime Stoppers hotline – you can safely give the operator information on the shooter without ever having to give your name – it’s completely safe and anonymous.

So, if you know who fired the shots that killed Stephen Jeffries and wounded a woman, don’t stay silent, pick up the phone and call:
