Inglewood Mayor James Butts and the City Council are offering a reward for information related to a 2009 murder.  On May 31, 2009, 25-year old Crystal Crawford was fatally shot while sitting in a car with friends.  The shooting took place in the 2900 block of 95th Street.

After being shot, Ms. Crawford was driven to a trauma center where she died.  The Inglewood Police Department has been working tirelessly to identify and apprehend the perpetrators of the crime for almost ten years.

“Crime continues to decrease in Inglewood, but we remain committed to solving every murder and every crime in Inglewood,” said Mayor Butts.  “It is our hope that this reward will encourage someone to come forward with information leading to the identification and conviction of the perpetrator of this murder.  Ms. Crawford deserves justice and her family deserves closure.”


Any person with additional information on this crime should contact Inglewood PD Homicide Unit at 310-412-5246 or CrimeStoppers at 800-222-8477 or visit and click on “submit a tip.”
