Family offers reward in Brentwood tire shop murder

Christopher Dollison found fatally wounded behind tire shop on North Main Street


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A family is pleading for information that leads to an arrest in the murder of a man outside a Brentwood tire shop.

Police said they found Christopher Dollison severely injured just after 1 a.m. April 24 outside Wayne’s Top Quality Used Tires on North Main Street. He died shortly after at a hospital. 

On Tuesday, Dollison’s family announced it is offering a reward for anyone with information that leads to an arrest. 

Dollison had just turned 30. He was the youngest of five siblings. His oldest sister, Nicole Kinder,  spoke with News4Jax.

“My family can’t grieve and can’t be at peace and my brother will never be at peace until we find out what happened to him that night,” Kinder said. “No one wants to bury the baby of their family.”

Kinder admits her brother mixed in with the wrong crowd, but said he didn’t deserve death. She said the people running Wayne’s Top Quality Used Tires were his closest friends. She said many of his friends were there when someone severely injured him and left him lying in the dirt out back. 

“We just want answers and I think Chris deserves that," Kinder said. "There’s a lot of people that really cared about him no matter what was going on in his life."

Kinder said the family is offering a $2,000 reward. When combined with the $3,000 Crime Stoppers reward, that makes a total of $5,000 for anyone with information in Dollison's murder that leads to an arrest. 

Crime Stoppers’ phone number is 1-866-845-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous. 

“I’m not going to push it to the wayside and just let my brother’s case be pushed to the side or go cold," Kinder said. "We want answers. We’re going to get answers."
