EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Four unsolved murders in Evansville have detectives pleading with the public to come forward with information that could lead to arrests.

One of the murders that are still unsolved is that of Mariah Strother and Keijuan Baker, both of whom were shot and killed at a gas station in Evansville back in late May. The lead detective on the case is Jackie Lowe with the Evansville Police Department and he says they need more people to come forward.

“Mariah’s father, Kareem Strothers, we talk on a weekly basis,” said Lowe. “We share information and what we are hoping for is that someone out there has information that will help with this case.”

Lowe said Mariah was in the wrong place at the wrong time at the time of the shooting and was not the intended target.

“Losing my daughter, Mariah, has been very hard,” said Kareem Strothers. “And we know there’s people out here that know what happened and we need them to come forward. We’re asking them to come forward.”

Strothers pleading that witnesses come forward not just in his daughter’s and Baker’s case but also in other unsolved murders, which include:

– Larry Meriweather, 30, who was shot at a house party on May 26th.

– Keyonja Barnes, 20, who died at the hospital on June 12 after being shot.

– Javon Bell, 22, who was murdered in a drive-by shooting on June 21.

Lowe said they have gotten several tips in many of these cases, but ultimately they have led nowhere. Anyone with information is asked to call EPD’s Detective Office at 812-436-7979 or the We Tip Line at 1-800-78-CRIME.
