FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

More than a month after police found 32-year-old Eric Watkins dead inside his car, his killer is still on the streets and investigators are asking for the community's help.

Police said they are following every lead they get and stress they welcome all information, even if it seems trivial – it may be just what they've been looking for to solve the case.

Investigators said someone shot Watkins multiple times inside his car on Marion Avenue last month. Since then, police have spent hours searching the scene, interviewing witnesses, and whatever else they can to find his killer.

Officials said they are still hopeful someone has information that will provide the missing link to this case.

"You never know what small, tiny little bit of information may lead to a break in the case. Nothing is too small. We really want all the information we can get around the time of the incident, if anyone has talked about it," said the department's Cliff Billingsley.

There is a $2,500 reward offered to anyone with information leading to an arrest in this case.

"The family deserves justice in this case and also the victim as well. We really need the citizens to come forward and to help us out and give us some more information to go on," said Billingsley.

If you have any information, you are asked to call the Florence Police Department.
