DELLWOOD, MO – St. Louis County Police are asking for the public’s help to solve the murder of a father shot and killed on Father’s Day.

A father looks on as the county medical examiner removes his son’s body.

The victim’s daughter wipes away tears.

32-year-old Terrell Greer, a son and father was shot and killed Father’s Day morning, and his family wants answers.

“I just want to be told how many times he got shot. If he suffered. Did he go fast? Those are questions that I have and I just want to say my goodbyes” said the victim’s mother Marlyn Greer Dixon.

St. Louis County Police say around 7 am officers arrived on the scene at Prior Drive and found a man dead from at least one gunshot wound.

There are still a lot of questions about what happened leading up to Greer’s death.

His mother says she got a call from a woman telling her, Terrell had been killed.

“She just said that all she heard was gunshots. She thought they were fireworks, and once she realized she was feeling something come past her, she hit the floor, crawled to the closet. That’s when she saw her mother crawling around to the closet. And after the gun shots stop, that’s when they went and found my son in her mother’s room dead.”

The bureau of crimes against persons is handling the investigation.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the St. Louis County Police Department at 636-529-8210 or CrimeStoppers at 866-371-TIPS.

“He didn’t have a bad bone in his body as far as hurting anybody, so for somebody to come and kill him, I don’t understand it.”
