Friends, Coworkers Hold Benefit for Driver Killed in Robbery Attempt

July 31, 2018 - 10:10 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) -  A mix of emotions at Three Monkeys, a restaurant on Morganford, during a benefit for former employee Dave Matthews.  He was delivering a pizza on July 4th when he was shot and killed in a robbery attempt. His friend Michael McClanahan was among those mourning.

“He was a very generous, awesome, would do anything for anyone dude, so  this shouldn’t happen to anyone, but for it to happen to a good friend who is that type of person was pretty shocking ,” he says.

Matthews' killer still hasn't been caught, so they're hoping the fundraiser will increase the reward to bring some information in.  Imo's already donated $10,000 toward a reward. McClanahan hopes they can get that above $25,000.

If you missed the benefit, you can donate at almost any establishment along Morganford.
