Jefferson City Area CrimeStoppers is offering several rewards in hopes of making arrests.

A $500 reward is being offered for tips in a killing that occurred on the night of May 8, when a 23-year-old man died from injuries he sustained in a shooting.

The victim was identified as 23-year-old Jefferson City resident Taveeon D. Fowler.

According to Jefferson City Police Department reports, officers responded to the area of 700 Monroe St. after receiving calls about multiple shots fired. Emergency personnel treated Fowler at the scene before taking him to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

Investigators said they don't believe Fowler was a resident of the neighborhood.

Another $500 reward is offered in the death of a 63-year-old man who died from wounds he received April 20.

Police identified the victim as Jerry Robertson, of Jefferson City.

Officers responded to an assault call in the 1400 block of East Miller Street, where they discovered Robertson had suffered a number of wounds of undetermined cause. He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, then flown to a Columbia hospital where he died shortly after his arrival.

A $1,000 reward is being offered for an August 2016 murder that occurred in a residence in the 1900 block of Stadium Boulevard.

Detectives are seeking assistance from the public for help finding the suspect or suspects responsible for the murder of 50-year-old William "Bill" Crawford, who was killed by a gunshot wound. Crawford was last seen on video leaving Schulte's grocery store before the killing occurred.

A $250 reward is being offered for information leading to arrests and seizures of "active meth labs." Authorities said they do this to help protect the community from the adverse effects methamphetamine and its production have — both the immediate effects of drug dependency and the hazardous waste produced during the manufacturing of meth.

A $500 reward is still being offered for information that leads to an arrest in connection with the disappearance of Jasmine Haslag. She was last seen June 18, 2007, as she was leaving for Bland to pick up her children. Her vehicle was recovered by Callaway County Sheriff's deputies in a wooded area off Missouri 94. Foul play is suspected.

Anyone with information on any of these cases should contact the Jefferson City Police Department at 573-634-6400 or anonymously through CrimeStoppers at 573-659-TIPS or online at
