CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV)--The family of a man murdered in October is raising money to solve the case. Larry Billings' wife is offering a reward to keep the case from growing cold.
Billings' wife says her husband's killer is on the loose and she wants them caught. She's working the case by working out, doing Zumba and inviting the community to join.
The music is playing at the Conway Roller Rink, and feet are moving; but they're not in skates, they're in tennis shoes. It's a Zumba fundraiser to grow a reward fund.
"Everyone in the community loved him," says Laviena Billings. Billings says she spent four and a half years married to Larry Billings.
"I have good days and bad days, some days are better than others," explains Billings.
She says her stepson found her husband shot to death at their home in October. Investigators say someone shot Billings in the head and didn't leave any signs of forced entry. His truck later found at a Kroger in West Little Rock. Investigators are still waiting for evidence to come back from the crime lab.
In the mean time, Billings says she's raised thousands of dollars in hopes someone will come forward with information. She invited people, like Brittany Radford, to donate $10 to work out. "No family should go unknown, and wonder who did something, they need answers," says Radford. Billings adds those answers will bring her peace, "I think for the whole community it would just be closure."
Chief Deputy Matt Rice says they are gaining ground and they have a couple people of interest. He says they spend each day looking for more information.
The Zumba event raised about a $150, but the reward is more than $15,000.
