Welcome to WEBSLEUTHS
Thank you SO much!!!
I don’t think there is any new information but an assurance that they are still investigating. JMO
Every time this thread bumps I keep hoping to see *ARREST*
Sometimes it takes a long time, but it is encouraging that they continue to get new leads.
Still no new info or arrests but someone is offering more reward money. The $10,000 previously offered for info leading to an arrest has now been raised to $50,000.
$50,000 reward being offered for information in death of Melissa Peskey
Does anyone know if the husband received Melissa’s life insurance benefits? Thanks.
That was in court -- the links should still take you to the case.
Most courts are still delayed due to COVID-19 of course, may be no progress at all.
Love to know the outcome!
They just bumped up the reward to $75,000 until Dec. 31, 2020. Let’s hope they are getting close!!
Wow, what a coincidence, was just thinking/talking about Melissa’s case in Caitlyn Kaufman’s case.
Hi @Kooifish, welcome. Do you have a link please for this? Thank you.
I wonder if the reward was just bumped because of this, which literally just happened - From Caitlyn Kaufman’s case:
“Chief Drake said they had a break in the case within an hour of a $50,000 reward being announced for information leading to an arrest.”
Suspect arrested in killing of Nashville nurse Caitlyn Kaufman
From Caitlyn’s thread:

I have added some more cases to the above post for reference/statistical study, etc, as well as organized it chronologically/ Again, this is not to say that any are related to Melissa’s case.
It is truly incredible how often people are shot while driving / this was only a few recent search results:
Sorry, new to web sleuths and forget to check it. I saw it on her sisters FB page. It won’t let me upload my screenshot
Wow!! It really is incredible, especially seeing a few that happened close-ish to Melissa’s hometown. It feels like such an anomaly to someone that lives in small town Iowa!!!!
That’s okay, screenshots from Facebook, and stuff from family’s pages aren’t allowed here anyway per TOS (rules linked below). Perhaps we can find another link that is mainstream media.
Found a link:
Reward for information on Melissa Peskey’s death raised to $75k
Good job! Thank you.
From the above link:
“SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - A reward for information leading to an arrest in connection to the death of a South Dakota woman who was shot in Missouri in 2018 has reached $75,000.“
I wanted to add another case to the list. This appears to be a cold case. I hope it’s okay to add it this way. Maggie O'Brien's owner found dead in car on I-55 had been shot hours earlier
This happened Nov 10,2016 in St. Louis, MO
Wow, I know where this is. Very shocking and random, such a tragedy. It does make you wonder if there are connections among these three shootings. I was just reading about the Caitlyn Kaufman case the other day. Aren't there still unsolved shootings like this in Colorado and also around Columbus, OH?
