$10,000 extra CrimeStoppers award offered in murder of rental house worker

Memphis, TN – A $10,000 CrimeStoppers extra award has been posted in the January 29 murder of Michael “Ross” Collier in an apparent carjacking as he worked on a house in a south Memphis neighborhood.

Collier, an employee of Urban Property Management, was at a rental house on Patton Road Monday morning and noticed someone at his truck. Moments later he was shot and the 2004 white F-150 Ford truck was driven away. Collier died shortly after police arrived on the scene.

Although residents in the area heard the gunfire, no one came forward to say they saw the suspect. The truck has an extended cab and a broken right wheel brake light and a dented fender.

Anyone who sees the vehicle should call Memphis Police.

“Someone knows the person or persons responsible for this crime,” said David Wayne Brown, executive director of CrimeStoppers of Memphis and Shelby County. “We urge anyone who knows anything to call us at 528-CASH (2274) right away.”
