Wilmington police offer reward for information leading to arrest in December murder case

WILMINGTON — The Wilmington Police Department has announced a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to an arrest in the murder case of William Springer.

“Just before 2 a.m. Sunday, December 29 [2019] officers near the 1100 block of Castle Street heard shots fired in the area. At the scene, they found 35-year-old William Springer suffering from a gunshot wound and initiated life-saving measures until EMS arrived. Springer later died as a result of his injuries,” according to police.

Springer himself was charged with murder in 2017 for the shooting death of 28-year-old Montreal Holmes in Wilmington. Charges against him were eventually dropped due to a lack of witnesses.

If you have information, contact WPD at (910)-343-3609 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-531-9845.
