Kellum murder still unsolved one year later

By  | 

LAMAR COUNTY, TX -- One year after his death, the murder of 27-year old Tramaine Kellum remains an unsolved mystery.

Kellum's body was found under a bridge on Farm Road 2122 in a rural area in Southwest Lamar County on June 13, 2013. Medical examiner's reports say Kellum died from multiple gunshot wounds.

In a press release issued by Sheriff Scott Cass Friday he said, "At this time we have no new information to release on the Tramaine Kellum Murder investigation. Evidence at the crime scene was minimal and did appear to be consistent with that location being a secondary crime scene."

Kellum was reported missing to the Paris Police just days before his body was found. Investigators say they've pursued several leads, but all have come up empty.

They have yet to find his vehicle, a 1995 silver Grand Marquis with Texas License plate BX8-P511, and have not received any tips through Crime Stoppers on the case.

We last spoke to Kellum's mother just a few days after his body was found.

"It would do a lot to know that if we could get justice served," said Kathy Kellum. "Maybe I could start over, but I know I would never be the same."

Investigators say there are some similarities in the murders of Tramaine Kellum and Troy Gray Junior, who was reported missing and found near a bridge in Red River County in April. But there is no definitive evidence connecting the two.

Authorities are asking anyone with any information to come forward and contact the Lamar County Sheriff’s Office, the Paris Police Department or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 903-785 TIPS.
