(March 7, 2013) Jackson TN - Today the Jackson Police Department facilitated a press conference on behalf of the family of Mr. Euhommie Ollie Bond to announce that “certain interested parties in and around the West Tennessee community” placed $15,000.00 on deposit with the Law Office of Sherry M. Percival, P.C. to be held in trust for the purpose of offering a reward of up to $15,000.00 for substantial information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the death of Euhommie Ollie Bond.
These funds will be held and released at the recommendation of the Jackson Police Department and the District Attorney's Office. The funds will be held until December 7, 2013 and the information must be given to the Jackson Police Department before that date. The funds will then be held pending the disposition of the case and only released if the information gained leads to a conviction.
Shortly before 4 a.m. on December 7, 2008, Mr. Euhommie Ollie Bond, 41, was shot at his business, Spanky's Bar & Grill, at 1867 Hollywood Drive.
Witnesses told Police that Mr. Bond had broken up a fight and had escorted some of the parties to the door and out of the business when he was shot.
Police arrested a man shortly after who was identified by witnesses as one of the principals to the shooting. The case against that man was dismissed at a preliminary hearing when defense witnesses contradicted the man's physical presence and proximity to Mr. Bond at the time of the shooting.
At the time of his death, Euhommie Bond was a deputy with the Haywood County Sheriff's Department.
He had gotten off duty in Haywood County at 2:00 a.m. the morning that he was killed. He was unarmed at the time of the shooting.
Mr. Bond also worked as a police officer for the Murfreesboro Police Department and at the Memphis Police Department. He was the Chief of Police in Bradford for a period of time as well.
He was also a Captain in the Army National Guard 130th Military Police Company stationed in Memphis.
The Jackson Police Department has a “person of interest” in Mr. Bond’s murder; however, we do not have sufficient evidence to obtain an indictment yet.
We know there were numerous people at Spanky’s that morning and believe that many of them were witnesses to the shooting. We hope that bringing this case back to the public’s attention will encourage these witnesses to come forward.
In addition to this private reward announced here today, Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 for information that significantly furthers this investigation.
