SPRING HILL, Fla. — In the early morning hours of Oct. 16, 2018, detectives say Alek Smith was killed when someone broke into his home in Spring Hill.

Now, nearly three years later, the Hernando County Sheriff's Office is still asking for help in finding who killed the 22-year-old.

In 2019, the sheriff's office said Smith was survived by his young daughter, girlfriend, brother and parents. 

Even the smallest piece of information may be useful.

Anyone who has information about this case is asked to call Detective Tom
Cameron at 352-754-6830. Those who would prefer to remain anonymous can submit tips to Hernando County Crime Stoppers at 1-866-990-TIPS (8477) or online.

The Florida Sheriff's Association Criminal Apprehension Assistance Program (CAAP) and Hernando County Crime Stoppers are each offering a $5,000 reward — a total of $10,000 for information that leads to the identity of the person(s) responsible for the death of Alek Smith.
