Police Search For Clues In December Murder

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – More than six months after a senseless murder, Metro Police are still looking for Stephen Milliken's killer.

Milliken's mother said he was supposed to start a new job right after Christmas, but it didn't happen.

"He got shot the day before he was supposed to be starting it," said Semetta Milliken.

The day after Christmas, Milliken and some friends drove to the Trinity Hills Apartments to sell recording equipment to three men, because Milliken wanted to buy some work boots for his new job.

The three men instead robbed them. After the robbery, Milliken and his friends got back in their car, but the robbers opened fire as they drove away. Milliken, who was in the passenger seat, was struck in the head. He was taken to the hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

"You know they got what they wanted, so why the murder? Why the shooting? I just want someone to come forward and tell police what happened, what they saw," Semetta Milliken explained.

Detective Willie Middleton, who is working the case, said he needs more information before he can make an arrest.

"Got some leads, got some good leads, following up on those leads and hopefully something will pan out," he said.

For Milliken's mother the wait is frustrating. She wants the person who killed her son behind bars.

"To me he's not going to lie comfortably in his grave until his killers are caught. I'm not going to rest until they're caught," she concluded.

Witnesses said one of the shooters had multiple tattoos on his face.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (615)74-CRIME.
