You cant live in Springfield for long without seeing this young man, his name is Christopher Nash and he was murdered on August 20, 2011. His family has placed posters up all over town in any window that will let them. Though it has been two years now since Christopher was murdered, for his family it happened yesterday.
I have spoken to Christopher’s family several times and you can see the stress in their faces, they really would like Christopher back but they understand that they will have to settle for the capture of his murderer. For them knowing that Christopher’s killer may still be walking free is a hard pill to swallow. Recently Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam stepped in with something Christopher’s family hopes will jar the case loose, a $10,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension, arrest and conviction of the person or persons who have committed, attempted to commit or conspired to commit the murder of Nash.
