TALLADEGA COUNTY, Ala. – Larry King is offering $5,000 as a reward for information regarding the murders of Stephen King and John Lowe Jr.
Two years ago on Nov. 30, 2015, Stephen Ryan King and his stepfather John William Lowe, Jr. were shot and killed on Oakdale Road in Alpine. A witness said an individual stopped to ask Lowe for directions when they heard several gunshots moments later. The individual speaking with Lowe fled the scene on foot. The Deputies responded to the scene where Lowe was transported to Coosa Valley Medical Center where he was declared deceased; King was pronounced dead on the scene.
Larry King, father of Stephen King, recently reached out to SylacaugaNews.com after seeing no progress for over two years in this case.
Sgt. Mike Jones says the Talladega County Sheriff’s Office has interviewed many people, including the witness from that night and others who knew both victims, but no new information has been brought to light. They are working diligently to find the person responsible. “Someone out there knows something about what happened that night. Sometimes with homicides people with information are reluctant to come forward at first, but we’re hoping this new offer will encourage someone to come forward,” said Sgt. Jones. No arrests have been made for this case, and there are no suspects at this time.
King said he knows nothing more today than he did on that night two years ago. He is offering a reward of $5,000 in addition to the Governor’s office reward of $5,000 authorized on June 8, 2016 for information about these murders. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Talladega County Sheriff’s Office at 256-761-2141.
