New Albany Police Chief David Grisham said there are no new leads into the death of Price, who was killed Dec. 5 in her backyard on Murrah Road. Her husband, New Albany head football coach Ron Price, was shot in the shoulder and treated at the hospital.
According to a preliminary autopsy report, Amanda Price was shot once in the chest.
While police haven’t released any leads in the case, the reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case was upped Wednesday to $25,000.
By raising the reward, Police Chief David Grisham hopes someone will step forward with information.
The initial $20,000 reward produced a few leads, which resulted in a couple of search warrants, but Grisham said they were all unrelated.
“We hope this larger reward will produce some solid tips for us,” said Grisham. “We have had leads, but none of them panned out to be anything.”
Police initially said a string of automobile burglaries in the neighborhood the night of the shootings may have been connected to the crime, but Grisham said nothing has been proven at this time.
“It’s getting very frustrating for us,” said Grisham. “All the leads we have chased have only led to dead-ends. No one seems to know much about the shootings. But we will continue hard to get this case solved.”
Grisham said he hopes someone in the public steps up soon and does the right thing.
“If you know something or think you know something, please just give us a call,” said Grisham. “We need the public’s help to bring this person or persons to justice.”
