MAUMEE, OH (TOLEDO NEWS NOW) - Darryl Stipes was murdered earlier this summer at his home in Sylvania Township.

No arrests have been made in the case.

But police are on the lookout for two suspects--one white, the other black.

Stipes was one of the most respected and well known drummers on Toledo's music scene. He most recently played with Josh Boyd and the VIP Band.

"He was one of the best drummers in town. Confident. Get it going on, was always in synch. The greatest" says Boyd.

That's why bands across the area donated their time Sunday at the "Justice for Darryl" benefit in Maumee.

Friends, family and especially fans of Stipes came to enjoy a spaghetti dinner and participate in a silent auction and raffle.

Stipes biker buddies even held a poker run in his honor.

"Darryl had a heart of gold. He had a passion for drums. Passion for music. He had a passion for wanting to entertain" says Stipes nephew Rick Angel.

All the money raised is going into a reward fund.

"We are putting the reward fund up there to bring the killers to justice. We feel if we can have a little peace of candy out there, someone can come and say something, let it slip out who did this to Darryl" says "Justice for Darryl" organizer Dee Lynn.

Stipes chilling final words before he died were heard on a 9-1-1 tape.

Friends say he didn't deserve to die the way he did.

"That man had such a great heart. I don't see how anybody could do that to him" says Lynn.

A "Justice for Darryl" fund has been set up at Fifth Third Bank.

If you have any information about the murder, contact Sylvania Township Police at 419-882-2055.

    The City of Toledo is apologizing to a man after they billed him for cutting grass on public property near his home.  Anthony Davis and his wife have lived in their home in south Toledo since 1995. The grass in the cul-de-sac outside their home is often overgrown. Davis normally does not mind cutting it himself.  "Just so that we don't look like we're living in some type of jungle or something," Davis said. However, recently the grass grew up to his knees.
