Reward announced for information in connection to Keeshanna Jackson case

Law enforcement agencies are now offering $15,000 in rewards for information in the shooting death of SIU-C freshman Keeshanna Jackson. The FBI’s Springfield Division announced Tuesday it is putting up $10,000 in addition to funds provided by the Columbia Police Department.


Jackson was shot to death while leaving a party at 3 a.m. on Aug. 22. Carbondale police have said multiple shooters may have been involved. Three other people were wounded.



So far, no suspects have been named. Police Chief Stan Reno has made multiple appeals to the public requesting information on the shooting, including any pictures or videos people may have of the party and surrounding homes or businesses.


FBI Special Agent in Charge David Nanz said, “We hope $15,000 in reward money will encourage the public to come forward with new information to help bring the perpetrator(s) to justice.”


Reno said the CPD, FBI and other law enforcement agencies will work tirelessly to bring justice for Jackson and closure to her friends and family.
