It's been almost 10 months since a father of three was gunned down in Camden and a reward is being offered to help find his killer.

"He just, honestly, he was the best and they're just gonna miss that," said Akacia Spearman, fianc.

Spearman is talking about how her children have to grow up without their father.

"We have a little slideshow that we sit down and watch together, that they really enjoy," said Spearman.



On Wednesday, October 23, 2013, Spearman says she and her fianc, 29-year-old Joseph Devine were planning to stay in and watch a movie.

"He got a phone call from Tonya. I'm really not sure what the conversation was about but he said he'll be right back," said Spearman.

Devine left to meet up with 21-year-old Tonya Hudson on the 2600 block of Cramer Street in Camden.

Just after 9:30 p.m., police were called to the scene for the report of gunshots.

Both Devine and Hudson had been hit.

Police say Devine was wearing a bulletproof vest but he died at the scene.

"My son is gone, that was my baby son," said Deborah Frazier, mother.

Hudson survived but according to Spearman and Frazier, she has not been cooperating with police.

"Whoever's out there, you know what happened that night, I just pray that they come forward because a life has been taken," said Frazier.

"Just somebody please come out and talk, if not for us, for his kids. They deserve to know and have him locked up," said Spearman.

The Citizens Crime Commission is administering $1,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.

All you have to do is call 215-546-TIPS (8477). All calls will remain anonymous.
