Police Need Your Help to Solve Two Unsolved Murders
NewsChannel 11 told you just last week that Lubbock has the highest amount of homicides in the region. We've seen 15 so far, but only two of those remain open cases where the killer or killers are still on the loose.
Lt. Scott Hudgens says, "One unsolved murder is bad to have. I'd like to have them all solved and bring somebody to justice on them."
So the Lubbock Police Department is asking for your help to do so. They are working leads and reviewing both open cases, but time is not on their side and the suspects behind the two unsolved homicides remain on at large.
Back in April, a jogger found 40-year-old Selena Kuykendall's body off East Municipal Drive next to a cell phone tower in northeast Lubbock. Neighbors suspected the victim may have been a prostitute. Still to this day, no suspects have been named.
Last month, 28-year-old John Wilkerson was shot to death in his driveway in the 2700 block of East Second Street. No suspects have been identified at this point, but with your help police are hoping to these unsolved murders will become closed cases very soon.
The Lubbock Police Department is offering a $2,000 reward for any information that would help them solve the Wilkerson case.
If you have any information about either of these cases, you are asked to please call Crime Line. That number is (806) 741-1000 and you can remain anonymous.
