Crime Stoppers June 23: Police need your help to solve May 27 homicide

Posted: Updated:
Victim: Ralph Woodfin Victim: Ralph Woodfin

Police are hoping your clues will stop a recent homicide from turning into a cold case. Ralph Woodfin was murdered May 27th, and we need to know who killed him. If you can help police find that killer, Crime Stoppers will give you cash.

Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper has this week's homicide report.

"I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper. 

Whoever killed Ralph Woodfin hasn't started paying for the crime. There's no reason it should stay that way, so help us catch his killer. 

You may remember he was gunned down Sunday, May 27th. Police were called to the 2300 block of 9th Avenue South. When they got there, Woodfin was lying face down in the street.
He had been shot. Woodfin was dead.

A witness said an unknown man, either white or Hispanic, shot Woodfin from a vehicle.
The witness didn't know what kind. 

Anything you saw or anything you've heard could be the evidence we need to put the killer behind bars.

If you know those answers or anything else call Crime Stoppers at 205-254-7777. We'll keep you anonymous, and if there's an arrest from your tip, you get a cash reward.

And remember: The greatest reward is justice for Ralph Woodfin and making sure whoever took his life pays for the crime.

With Crime Stoppers, I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper.

No matter which method you choose, you will remain anonymous.

The cash reward in this case is offered to the first person whose tip leads to an arrest. Even if you receive the cash reward, you still will not have to give your name -- only the code number.
