Cold Case Quest: Cynthia K. Smith

Cynthia K. Smith

20- year -old Cynthia K. Smith was shot while making a phone call at a record store in Columbus, Ohio. The incident occurred on January 24, 1993.

The record store, Negus, Negast, was close to Reggae nightclub. If I understand the story correctly, the nightclub was next door to the record story. The shots came from across the street.

The police suspected that the shooter was upset that they could not enter the nightclub. So in retaliation they opened fire. Smith happened to be shot by a stray bullet.

There were about 20 people at the nightclub. No one will tell police who was shooting. It seems unlikely that no one saw what happened.

The witnesses were probably afraid to name the shooter. This person opened fire because they were angry about something that was more than likely trivial. So can you imagine how much destruction they would cause for something like being accused of the murder of Cynthia K. Smith?

The area of the homicide location.

If any of the witnesses had come forward, the suspect could have been arrested and hopefully sent to prison.

The hope in writing this post is that someone that witnessed the crime would finally tell the police what they know about the night of January 24, 1993.

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.
