Billboard Seeks Information In Fatal Shooting

Billboard Seeks Information In Fatal Shooting

CREATED Jan 17, 2014

SMYRNA, Tenn. (AP/NewsChannel 5) - A Middle Tennessee woman has taken out a billboard ad in an effort to get more information about her husband's death last month.

The electronic billboard along Interstate 24 near the Bell Road exit in Antioch offers a $15,000 reward for information in the fatal shooting of 47-year-old Jackie Warpoole. He was found dead in Smyrna on December 15 by a passing motorist.

Angela Warpoole told the Daily News Journal that Lamar Advertising donated the first 30 days that she uses the billboard. Warpoole said the lack of clues in her husband's death has been frustrating, but she's hoping the billboard along with the reward changes that.

Angela told NewsChannel 5 earlier this month that her husband had left their home early that morning, but she didn't know why. She said she had earplugs in and didn't hear him get up or leave the house.

Detectives think learning where he went is a key to the case.  NewsChannel 5 has learned that Warpoole's cellphone has helped pinpoint his general location before the murder.

Detectives said Warpoole appears to have been driving around the city of Murfreesboro between the hours of 4 and 6 a.m.  They now want to know if anyone remembers seeing him there the morning of December 15th.
