"I just miss him, and I want to help catch his killer", Bill Spires said. He was a friend of Jon Spurling's for more than ten years.Last week when Spurling was found dead at his home in Howard County he said he was devastated, "He was a really good family man, he loved his son Zach, he attended church regularly, he was just a really good guy.I couldn't imagine why somebody would want to kill him." Now, Spires and a group of friends want to help catch a killer.Police don't have many leads and the investigation is slow going so they created a web site to raise reward money to help solve the case; justiceforjon.com. We need help donating, you know the higher the reward the better people are at offering tips, no matter how big or small they are -we hope that will help out. Spires said. He said he'll remember Spurling as just a really happy guy who enjoyed life, he said friends and family are puzzled by the murder because Spurling didn't have any enemies.
