Army offering reward for info on person who killled deployed soldier’s wife


Federal and Military law enforcement are offering up to a $20,000 reward for information concerning the murder of a Fort Stewart spouse, who was found dead inside on-post housing earlier this month.

Both the US Army Criminal Investigation Command and the FBI are looking for answers in relation to the murder of 24-year-old Abree Boykin, whose body was discovered by Military Police during a wellness check on July 10.

“Our investigation remains ongoing and I can assure you our special agents are working around the clock on this case and have made significant progress,” Army CID Spokesman Christopher Grey told WTOC, a local station covering the area surrounding the Georgia Army installation.

Special agents report that Boykin’s car went missing after her murder, and have already issued law enforcement agencies all over the country to be on the lookout for it. The vehicle has been described as a Black Honda Accord, GA tag number RLQ172.

The investigators initially suspected the death to be one of foul play, sending a wave of panic across the installation and forcing Fort Stewart Garrison Commander Colonel Jason Wolter to release a statement in an attempt to calm locals.

“This is an ongoing investigation. The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, the Directorate of Emergency Services, and our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners are working this case around the clock to close the investigation,” Wolter said in a recent press release. “Based on this particular incident, we believe this to be an isolated event, and residents should have no heightened concerns about their safety or security.”

Boykin’s husband, Unit Supply NCO Shawn Boykin, was married to her just before he deployed to Korea. In a Facebook post, he discussed how distraught he was after learning about the loss of his wife.

“I’ve literally just lost my best friend in the world,” he wrote earlier this month as he left Korea to come back to Fort Stewart. “I’m so sorry that I couldn’t be there to protect you as a husband.”

The investigation is ongoing.
