Sheriff offers $10K reward for Goshen murder leads

Unknown suspects who killed a Goshen gas station employee in September remain at large

TULARE COUNTY – Not dissimilar to a “wanted” poster in the wild west, the Tulare County Sheriff’s Office is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who can provide information that leads to the arrest of two murder suspects.

The killing of a Sinclair Gas Station store clerk on Sept. 19 has still gone unsolved so far in October. According to the Sheriff’s office, the victim, Richard Harris, was held up by two men who were armed with guns. They walked in and demanded money, and even though Harris complied the suspects shot him anyway.

One of suspects was wearing a blue hoodie with a blue shirt sticking out, blue jeans, black shoes and a black COVID-style facemask over his face. The other suspect was wearing a white-hooded sweatshirt, a Halloween-style clown mask covering his face, ripped up blue jeans and red shoes.

According to a Sheriff’s office press release, Harris was a celebrated, hard working man who had just celebrated his 50th birthday and was loved by many in the community of Goshen. He left behind a large family of siblings, nieces and cousins who were the center of his world.

After Harris’s tragic death the Sheriff’s department received an outpouring of support in donations.
