Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers is once again asking for the public’s help tracking down witnesses in a fatal shooting that occurred on I-75 in mid-December.
Around 4:30 a.m. on Sunday, December 16, 2018, officers responded to a scene around Mile Marker 125 on I-75, just south of Alico Road, where a car had crashed into the median. Upon further inspection, it was learned that the driver of the car, 29 year old Ronald Green, had been shot and was suffering from life threatening injuries. Nearly three weeks later, Green succumbed to those injuries and the shooting turned into a homicide investigation.
While some drivers who were in the area at the time of the shooting have spoken to detectives, there is a continued need for information from other drivers who happened to be in the vicinity that morning. Any drivers who may have witnessed the shooting, or any altercation along that portion of I-75 around 4:30 a.m. on December 16th are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477). All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000. Tips may also be made online at www.southwestfloridacrimestoppers.com or by submitting a tip on the P3Tips mobile app.
