Cold Case Quest: Reggie Elkins

https://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/Files/Law-Enforcement/Investigator/Cold-Case/Homicides/Elkins

When I was looking through cold cases, I saw a familiar face. It was a picture of Reggie Elkins. I knew him as an acquaintance. We went to the same small college. So everyone knew everyone.

My impression of Reggie was that he was smart and athletic. He also always looked sharp. Some guys are slobs but Reggie was not one of those guys.

There is probably a better photo of him somewhere. This is the only one that I could find on the internet. He was killed in 1994 so he wasn’t on MySpace or Facebook. It’s been difficult to find anything that relates to his college days or his murder investigation.

It’s hard to believe that it has been 24 years since Reggie died. He was killed in a drive-by shooting in Columbus, Ohio. He had been out of college for only a few months.

No one will say whether he was the intended target or not. Someone knows but no one has said a word even after so many years.

There’s an article from 1999 that states that the authorities had a theory that several homicides were connected. They thought 13 murders were related by either drugs or robbery.

His father, Larry Elkins, was interviewed for the article. Unfortunately, his father passed away in 2009. It is absolutely heartbreaking that Reggie’s dad died without knowing who killed him. We may never know why it happened but he might have been somewhat satisfied with knowing who did it.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.
