YPSILANTI, MICH. — Police investigating the shooting death of Eastern Michigan University & Simeon High School football player Demarius Reed plan to offer an update on the case.
A campus and community forum is Tuesday at the Ypsilanti school with interim police Chief Tony DiGiusti and others.
Police are offering $5,000 for clues to his killer’s identity and say they’re looking for anyone who attended a party at the off-campus apartment complex where he was found dead. Police say the party at University Green apartments took place Thursday night and into Friday morning.
Reed was found shot multiple times Friday in what police say may be a robbery. The 20-year-old Chicagoan was a communications major. Reed also was projected at number 43 in Illinois out of all college football players according to ESPN.
Reed’s funeral is Saturday in Harvey, Ill. His teammates and coaches plan to attend a visitation. Many Chicago friends are in mourning over the loss of what many believed to be the next “Face of a Generation” the good ones always end up leaving earth too soon.
My respect and prayers go out to the Reed Family on their loss. Stay tuned for more up to date info on this story.
