Memphis Pastor Don Smith was shot and killed Saturday — and his family still doesn’t have any answers.
Smith’s body was found lying on Hickory Hill, beside a pond, and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The family is still in shock.
“All we know is right now he was murdered and we can’t find the person who did it,” said family member Raymond Jones. “We’re still trying to put pieces together of what actually happened…of what caused his death.”
Smith, a pastor at Prospect Park Missionary Baptist Church in Whitehaven, spent all his time at the church or in the kitchen — warming souls with food and the Gospel.
A wake will be held for Pastor Smith on Friday between 4 and 7 p.m., and the funeral will take place on November 8 at 11 a.m. at the Golden Gate Cathedral on Saturday.
“As a family we’ve already forgiven this person,” Jones said. “But we want justice served.”
