Tennessee Couple Arrested For Killing Popular Pastor
Via The Grio reports:
The family of a Memphis pastor found dead Saturday may finally have justice. The Prospect Park Missionary Baptist Church pastor, Don Smith, was discovered dead near a pond at Hickory Hill. His car was also missing.
Police spotted the car on Wednesday and pulled over Lashonda Williams, 24, and Roger Reed Jr., 23. Warrants for first-degree murder were issued for both of them.
Memphis Pastor Don Smith was shot and killed Saturday — and his family still doesn’t have any answers.
Smith’s body was found lying on Hickory Hill, beside a pond, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The family is still in shock.
“All we know is right now he was murdered and we can’t find the person who did it,” said family member Raymond Jones. “We’re still trying to put pieces together of what actually happened…of what caused his death.”
Smith, a pastor at Prospect Park Missionary Baptist Church in Whitehaven, spent all his time at the church or in the kitchen — warming souls with food and the Gospel.
A wake will be held for Pastor Smith on Friday between 4 and 7 p.m., and the funeral will take place on November 8 at 11 a.m. at the Golden Gate Cathedral on Saturday.
May God have mercy on their sick souls!
