Allie’s employer replaces stolen cross, reward now up to $50,000

Allison Rice’s work family at the Shed BBQ in Baton Rouge put up a blue cross at the site where Allie died.

It was on Sept. 16th around 2:20 am when Allie was found dead after someone shot her and her vehicle upwards of 10 times. Allie was waiting on the train in the 1500 block of Government St. when she was killed. She was on her way back home to LSU, where she was a senior.

Her family says she had gone to meet a friend who was closing out her shift at 2 am and Allie did not want her to be alone when she closed. After they closed, her friend headed one direction to her home while Allie headed the other way back to her home.

Today, Shed owners Chez Ciccone along with Allie’s co-workers Marshall & Jonathan, put up nearly a 6-ft cross on a pole where Allie died. It comes after the first cross and other items placed at the site were stolen last weekend.

“We did it simply because last Saturday when Paul and his family put a cross up, within 24 hours it was stolen. They stole her picture, the cross, the teddy bear, dragon, Cheetos and Dr. Pepper. So we figured by putting a cross up 6-7 feet up in the air, it would be far more difficult to steal,” said Ciccone.

The Ciccones also offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest(s) and indictment(s) of the individual(s) responsible for Allie’s death. Within hours, it grew and continued to grow.

Anyone wishing you add to the pot can head to any Citizens Bank and ask for the Allison Rice Memorial Fund. All the money will go towards the reward.

Now, the reward is up to $50,000. The information must lead to the person’s arrest and indictment. You can call Crime Stoppers anonymously with the information at 344-STOP.
