An anonymous donor has added $100,000 to the reward for information on the murder of Tamara Greene. 

According to Crime Stoppers, the cash reward for tips leading to an arrest is now up to $102,500. 

In 2003, Tamara Greene, also known by her stage name "Strawberry", was murdered in northwest Detroit. 

In the early morning hours of April 30, 2003, it was pitch black but all was quiet after 3 a.m. on Detroit's west side. Greene and her boyfriend, Eric Mitchell were chatting in her car when a mystery man with a pistol sprayed a barrage of bullets from a gun. Greene and her boyfriend were both hit more than once, but Greene didn't make it.

Police say the suspect was in a white Chevrolet Blazer.

The rumors went wild. Green worked as an exotic dancer. The word was that she worked for heavy hitters in her past, like former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick.  

It's often been said, but never proven, that she was inside the Manoogian Mansion one night. Some speculate something sinister happened there, which may be the very reason why Greene was killed.

Her murder remains unsolved.

If you have any information in the cold case murder of Tamara Greene, call Crime Stoppers at (800) SPEAK-UP. 

Callers will be anonymous.
