Police Make Arrests in Ray Humphrey Jr. Murder Case
Some long awaited movement finally took place this weekend in the investigation of the murder of 12-year-old Rayshone D. Humphrey Jr. and it has led to the arrests of three people allegedly connected with the March 28th shooting in the 1100 block of North 5th Street in Quincy. Police arrested Steson Crider of Chandler, Arizona on suspicion of first degree murder. Steson Crider was arrested in Mesa, Arizona and is being held on $5 million bond in the Maricopa County Jail in Arizona.
According to a Herald Whig web report, Quincy Police Chief Rob Copley made the announcement of the arrest at a news conference held at Quincy City Hall Sunday afternoon. It was also announced that Steson Crider's father, Stefan Crider Jr. and Julia Crider were also arrested in the case on suspicion of four counts of conspiracy to obstruct justice. Both were arrested in Springfield, Illinois and were being held in the Sangamon County Jail in Springfield.
Police are still looking for a fourth person, in Stefan Crider lll, who could be facing conspiracy to obstruct justice charges. It is believed that Stefan Crider lll is no longer in the Quincy area. Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard is asking the public for their help in finding Stefan Crider lll.
Barnard credited local law enforcement for their countless hours of investigation. A KHQA web report also quotes Barnard as saying these suspects "have been on the radar for a long time". Chief Copley also mentioned that more arrests may be made in this case as the investigation continues.
