Matthew Smith

Age: 37 | State: | County: Jackson | Case Status: Open

Matthew Smith, my son, was only 37 when he was murdered with illicit fentanyl. He’d taken 1/2 of what he believed to be an oxycontin. His case, although still classified as open, has yet to be investigated. I’ve spoken with everyone from the detective initially assigned to the case, his Sergeant, the Chief of Police, the Mayor, Jackson County Drug Task Force and DEA from St Louis (who finally transferred the case to the more local office). Nothing has been done to date. I found Cash app transactions (the police had it for months) within minutes with the name of the individual whose name was also on some RX bottles (that I had given to IPD). His home was never treated as a crime scene and no one has ever been questioned.
