Reward increased to $5,000 to find Terry Jackson, accused in homicide of Brittany Booker in Racine
RACINE, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A reward to find 41-year-old Terry Jackson, a Racine homicide suspect, has increased to $5,000.
Authorities say Jackson is tied to the death of 30-year-old Brittany Booker.
Jackson has been on the run since February, when authorities say he attacked his ex-girlfriend and Booker. They say he returned to the area and took Booker's life on Sunday, April 24.
Wednesday, May 11, Booker's family laid her to rest. Her father says he will not have closure until Jackson is caught. "I'm not letting this case go cold," said Leonard Larry. He's asking the public to come forward with any helpful information. "I need your eyes, ears. Let's get this guy," he said.
Larry believes police could have done more to protect his daughter. "My daughter was scared. She would get out the car and run straight to the door. She was terrified," Larry said.
Brittany's father says moving forward, he would like better communication from police about the case.
Maurice Robinson, Racine Police Chief says law enforcement is working diligently to catch Jackson. "There are people that have known where he is and have helped to hid him," he said. Arrests have already been made for those who are believed to have helped Jackson.
There are now several agencies working together to capture him, including U.S. Marshalls. Racine Police are also in contact with authorities in Illinois where Jackson could have fled.
"If you are aware of where he is hiding, you need to let us know. He is a violent offender. He has no regard for human life," said Chief Robinson.
The $5,000 reward is being offered by Crime Stoppers.
Any witnesses, or citizens with any information are urged to call Racine Police Investigator and U.S. Marshall Task Force Officer Mike Seeger at (262)-939-2437 or Lt. Freidel at (262)-635-7761.
