December 3, 2013


The brother of Nashvillian Livia Rose Smith has posted a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for her February 20th death.
Smith, 32, was found lying on the roadway in the 2600 block of Barclay Drive, about one block from her East Nashville home, at 5:10 a.m. that morning.  She had suffered a head injury and abrasions to her hands and knees.  
Smith was last seen alive at approximately 1:45 a.m. on February 20th getting into a cab outside 3 Crow Bar on Woodland Street in the Five Points area.  Witnesses reported that the cab appeared to be yellow.  Investigators found no record of a fare being picked up by Yellow Cab Company, although the company’s record keeping in March was lacking.  Officers and detectives located and interviewed approximately 20 cab drivers who frequented the Five Points area.  None provided any information leading to the identification of the cabbie who picked up Smith.
