SAVANNAH, Ga. – Kevin Reid’s art studio filled with friends and family Wednesday night to mourn his death exactly one week ago.
“Kevin was a wonderful man. The few times I met with him he was bright, enthusiastic, a great supporter of the arts,” Daniel Smith, who knew Reid, said. “We met several times about the gallery. Talked about the art scene here in Savannah.”
Photos of Kevin lay out on display along with flowers and a guest book. People stood in line to comfort Kevin’s wife, Kari Reid, who was grateful for the support.
“I’m here to support Kari,” Smith said. “My sister asked me to be here because she can’t come down.”
“The outreach and support I’ve received from people here in Savannah has been amazing,” Kari said.
Support that will extend beyond thank you cards and flowers.
“Some of the local business leaders and businesses are coming together to create a reward fund for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of Kevin’s killers,” Kari said.
Reid was shot and killed near his home on Waldburg Street and they’re still nowhere to be found.
Finding these men would be justice that Kari, friends and family want to see so they can finally have some peace.
“I think it’s important that we come together as a community to apprehend these killers, because if we don’t they’re going to kill someone else and somebody else is going to have to go through what I’m going through right now and what Kevin’s family is going through right now,” Kari said.
Police have yet to release specific descriptions of the men involved. Anyone with information should call CrimeStoppers at 912-234-2020.
