Season 1, Episode 44: There Should've Been a Book: The Murder of Reginald Coleman

Season #1 Episode #45

Reginald Royce Coleman was 17 years old in 2019 when he became the 4th homicide victim of that year in Beaumont Texas. It was only early April when police found his body around 10:30 PM near the Sterling Pruitt pool building in the 2800 block of Gulf Avenue. Police found both money and drugs on Reginald, which made robbery seem unlikely. Police knew who Reginald was because they had considered him a person of interest in a string of local aggravated robberies. They said that as they attempted to interview witnesses, those people laughed and refused to cooperate. But someone out there knows something.
