Governor Kay Ivey has put up a $5,000 reward for a unsolved murder of a Selma woman last year.

Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson said Ivey issued a $5,000 proclamation for information leading up to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the death of Estella Smith, who was killed at her Bradley Homes apartment on June 13, 2021.  Smith was 76 at the time of her death. No one has been arrested in the case.

“I wrote a letter to the Governor and her office responded,” Jackson said. We are very grateful for this award. It brings a ray of hope to the Smith family who lost their mother under these tragic circumstances.”
