Reward offered for arrest in North Greenwood double slaying

CLEARWATER — Authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in the double homicide in North Greenwood on April 4.

Detectives hope the reward, offered by Crime Stoppers of Pinellas and the Clearwater Police Department, will lead them to 22-year-old Bryan Caldwell, who is wanted in the murders of Derrick Harris, 23, and William Hamilton, 30, who were shot to death near LaSalle Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.

Caldwell is wanted on two counts of second-degree murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Police said Caldwell is considered armed and dangerous.

Police said last week that investigators have been stymied by witnesses who have been unwilling to come forward with information.

Five days after Harris and Hamilton were gunned down, a 20-year-old man was injured in a drive-by shooting at Harris' home. Witnesses said several people may have been involved in that shooting. Police have not named any suspects in that case.

Crime Stoppers offered $1,000. The Police Department is putting up $4,000. The money will be awarded to the person who submits the first tip providing information that leads to Caldwell's arrest.

The tip must be submitted through Crime Stoppers to be eligible. Tipsters will remain anonymous and receive a unique code which will be used to award the money. Tips can be sent by phone at 1-800-873-8477, on the website at or by texting TIP144 and the information to CRIMES (274637).

  1. No easy answer to the Dunedin parking question

    Local Government

    DUNEDIN — Nothing has been more divisive in this city than the issue of paid parking.

    A server at Cafe Alfresco (background) claims Dunedin's new paid parking has cost him money. Dunedin began a paid parking last October. Nine months in, residents, business owners and city officials all share mixed feelings. In October, when the one-year program ends, the city will have until November to come up with another solution to its parking woes, or continue the paid parking program at the risk of angering locals.JIM DAMASKE   |   Times
