Police search for killer of Evansville DJ

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Evansville Police are still searching for the person who killed Shane Breedlove, a popular Evansville DJ.

Autopsy results show he died from internal bleeding due to the trauma of being shot.

Country singer and friend of Shane's, Jackson Young, spoke to 14NEWS as reward money keeps piling up to catch the killer.

Investigators have learned that Shane Breedlove was on the phone with a woman when he was shot and killed.

So far in a little over 24 hours, close to $12,000 was raised for a reward leading to the conviction of Shane's killer.

According to police reports, officers interviewed the woman Shane was on the phone with at the scene Sunday night.

Police have searched nearby businesses for surveillance video clips showing who was in the area around 9:15 p.m. Sunday.

KC's Time Out Lounge has put up a $10,000 reward, and the Breed Love Not Hate page has raised $1,500 so far.

Singer Jackson Young, who was supposed to spend his birthday weekend with Shane in a few days, talked about the loss of his friend.

"You're a coward, you took someone's life, you have no idea what you've stirred up, who you've stirred up, you may have thought that you were going to get away with it," Young told us.

"You may have thought that you could just do something and nobody would do anything about it.  You didn't know how much it would hurt me to know that you took my friend and how I will relentlessly search for you until there is justice."

Police haven't released how many times or where Shane was shot.

Investigators are asking anyone with information on the murder to call the We-Tip hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME.

Funeral services will be this Friday at Rudy-Rowland Funeral Home.

KC's Time Out Lounge has announced a BBQ chicken dinner for Friday at 5 p.m. to benefit a college fund for Breedlove's kids.

Stephanie Bruce has created a T-shirt that says "Breed Love Not Hate" on the front and "Justice for Shane" on the back. 100% of the proceeds will go to Shane's four children. They will be available for order for $15 during the benefit at KC's Time Out Lounge.
