Police increase reward in year old murder case

By Crystal Britt

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - This weekend marks the one year anniversary of the death of a 20-year-old Cape Girardeau woman. Investigators say her killer is still out there. Police up the reward money to help bring the suspect to justice.  

They're looking for 31-year-old Tambra Turner who is originally from the Sikeston area and still has family members in Sikeston. Investigators believe Turner's responsible for shooting and killing Chabreshea Egson inside a home on North Spanish Street on February 22, 2008. Egson was taken to the hospital, but died shortly after.  

Cape Girardeau Police, the Sikeston Department of Public Safety, and the FBI are all looking for Tambra Turner. Originally police thought she left the state, and may have shaved her head. Right now there's no indication on specifically where she might be, or what she looks like.

Turner was featured on America's Most Wanted back in October. She was part of the show's "15 Seconds of Shame." Police say that generated some leads, but those have since dwindled.

Officers also still consider Turner dangerous.

"Anyone who's wanted for murder, I would consider dangerous," said Sgt. Jason Selzer with the Cape Girardeau Police Department. "Obviously she doesn't want to be caught. Somebody knows where she is and we just ask them to give us a call. Collect your reward money and get her in front of a jury."

The reward money is now up to $3000 for information leading to the capture of Tambra Turner. Contact your local law enforcement agency if you have any information.
