COLUMBIA, Md. — Thursday marked the third anniversary since Meiko Locksley was shot and killed in Columbia. He was just 25-years-old.

So far no arrests have been made and police have doubled a reward to $20,000 for information leading to the killer.

Meiko, the son of Maryland Terps head football coach Michael Locksley, was murdered just before 10:30 p.m. in the 5500 block of Harpers Farm Road, on September 3, 2017.

Detectives don't believe the murder was random. They are looking into potential motives, including "robbery, the possibility that it may have been drug-related or the result of an ongoing dispute," according to Howard County Police.

“Someone out there knows what happened,” said Cory Zirk, commander of the Criminal Investigations Bureau. “If there was something holding you back from giving information to the police back then, we are asking you to reconsider and come forward now. You may have that one small detail that may seem insignificant to you, but may be the last piece of the puzzle for our detectives.”
