NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who killed a Nashville nurse has grown to $66,000.

Metro police said Thursday a coalition of Nashville business owners and entrepreneurs donated $50,000 to the growing fund. Previously two other residents donated $5,000 and $10,000 to add to the $1,000 reward offered by Crime Stoppers. All who contributed to the reward fund wish to remain anonymous.

Caitlyn Kaufman was on her way to work when police said she was shot and killed in her SUV on Interstate 440 last week. She was a nurse in the Saint Thomas Hospital West ICU.

Metro police believe she was killed sometime between 6:05 p.m. and 6:10 p.m on December 3. Investigators said they do not know of a motive or suspect in the killing and urge anyone who may have been traveling on the interstate around that time and saw something suspicious to call police.

Anyone with any information on the case was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 615-742-7463.
