Reward Increased in Dallas Courier's Murder

Two nightclubs have added $15,000 to rewards leading to the arrests of three men who joined in the fatal shooting early Jan. 6 of a courier who was trying to make an overnight deposit at a Dallas bank.

The rewards offered by Cowboys Arlington and Cowboys Red River bring the total rewards to $25,000, said Senior Cpl. Kevin Janse, Dallas Police spokesman. Schepps Dairy had earlier donated $10,000.

Police are looking for three men in connection with the killing of Phillip Washington, 50, whose slaying was captured on surveillance video in the parking lot of the State Bank and Trust in the 4200 block of North Central Expressway.

"Cowboys Arlington and Cowboys Red River are nightclubs that Mr. Washington picked up from," Janse said. "He would pick up their nightly deposits and take them to the bank, like he was doing the night he was killed."

Police have said that Washington's white Dodge Ram pickup truck and an undetermined amount of cash were taken.

The three men are considered armed and dangerous, police said. Here is the released video footage:

Janse said anyone has information about the crime or the suspects please can call homicide detectives at 214-671-3661.
