Crime Stoppers April 12: Was Audrey Price the killer's target?

Posted: Updated:

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

Let's go back to February 13, 2006. That's when 23-year-old Audrey Price was killed.

She was driving a white Mazda 626 on I-65 when someone drove up and peppered the car with bullets. Price was killed as the car came to a stop.

Later, we got word of a second shooting victim. This victim was a man. He was alive and being treated at Carraway Hospital. It turns out, that man was a passenger in Price's car.

Price and that man had met at the Waffle House on University Boulevard. Both left in Price's car.

When they were driving on the interstate, a black Chevy Tahoe or Suburban pulled up beside them. Someone inside began shooting.

Now we need to know why she was killed. Was she the real target or were her killers targeting her passenger? Maybe you can put two and two together and give us a tip on who's responsible.

If you go through Crime Stoppers, we'll never take your name. Crime Stoppers cannot call you to court to testify. We'll give you a code number, and if your tip leads to an arrest, you can use that code number to claim a cash reward.

Audrey Price did not deserve what happened, but she does deserve justice. And you owe it to her right now.

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