On January 16, 1998 36 year old Sherry Ann Culp was sitting in her car outside her workplace at the Fullerton Industrial Park in Springfield, Virginia. Sherry, a divorced mother of two was 8 1/2 months pregnant when a masked man walked to up to her car and shot Sherry twice in the head. Sherry was taken to Inova Fairfax Hospital. Her baby, Kelley, was delivered via Cesarean and died two days later.
Police said two men were seen sitting in a reddish-maroon Ford Ranger pickup in the area minutes before the shooting. One man was wearing a dark jumpsuit with a hood over his head. He was later seen running away from Culp’s car. He was black. The other man was described as white, in his 30s and about 6 feet tall with sandy brown hair.
Investigators believe this was a murder-for-hire and have investigated Sherry’s ex-husband. In addition, they would also like to speak to a man seen at a Landmark Mall restaurant talking to Sherry’s husband prior to the murder.
In addition to the $1000 cash reward being offered by Crime Solvers, the family of Sherry Culp is offering an additional reward, which was recently increased, of $50,500 for information which leads to an arrest and indictment.
