jaguardeathSEATTLE — Seattle police are asking for the public’s help in solving a murder case stemming from a shooting early Sunday in the parking lot of the Seattle Vocational Institute.

Wilbert Plummer was found shot to death and now detectives want to know if anyone saw him or his vehicle, a 2012 black Jaguar 4D with tinted windows and a Miami Heat license plate.

He was at Tia Lou’s nightclub in Belltown Saturday night, but then was found slain in the Central District.

Investigators say Plummer worked as a car salesman and liked nice clothes and cars, which may have gotten someone’s attention.

If you saw Plummer Saturday night or have any information on his murder, call 206-233-5000 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-222-tips.

    I was fortunate to be part of his new "work" family in Seattle. He was a ray of sunshine and a positive soul. Our team/family will mourn and grow stronger because of Will. My prayers are with his family, friends and co-workers. We truly miss him. RIP WILL.

    Banner on his back. Lmfao. He was planning on covering that up. With a Miami heat type design. But she wasn’t lucky enough/fortunate to keep him. He was a sweet, sweet guy. We both overcame the things we dealt with from past relationships. But complemented each other in many ways. I think u should’ve had better things to say to “remember” a “love” then love he banner. – retarded. We are all going to miss this guy. The love of my life!!! Always in my heart, soul. (I looked at that n it really isn’t legible to me)

    • banner

      that's why I keep all my emails :) he was still my friend and I heard from him twice a week….but that was
      between us. I feel sad you had to post something so tasteless.

  • Chris Hutcheson

    We all miss you Will! May God comfort your family during this tragic time. I pray that justice will be served. Will was a great friend and awesome basketball player. Wish i could of played one more game with you! You will not be forgotten! RIP Wil!

  • Shawna campbell

    Tasteless. I just went by what he said to me. Wasn’t good at all but apparently there’s alot I didn’t no. (Just seen comment). W/e it was. I am sure there may have been some good memories.

  • Shawna campbell

    @shannon. I do apologize for airing a comment based on something he told me. Not appropriate but I wAsnt myself. I let anger get the best of me n I am clearly not like that@all. It doesn’t matter what may or may not have been said or what is true or not. What matters is that they find the killer/coward. We all have our own memories n that’s what’s left. I truly hope u understand where I was coming from. Wish u n all the others comfort n express my condolences. I am sorry. Hugs! Wish u all the best in the future.

  • Shawna campbell

    Assuming there is no “new” evidence. Wtf??? It’s been over a month. Really??? It’s surrounded by alot of housing. Seriously. Someone had to have seen more. Make if the departing vehicles. Something???

  • Ms frustrated

    Ok. So I am beginning to wonder about the whole justice system. They find answers to all these cases within days or a few weeks. But still no answer for the murder of wil. Okay do what’s wrong with this picture? Seriously! It’s been two months. Is anyone even working on the case or on holidays ?!! The dude did go to church occasionally. Maybe that may change ur outlook on it. He was an outstanding guy. Sure abit of a show boat but he treated ppl good. He never meant any harm to anyone. He was very charming/smooth with the ladies. Clearly! But not someone who deserved to b shot. The worst thing anyone could accuse him of is being a “ladies man” or abit of a “playa”. But that’s prob just like 50% of males/females out there. He was just a guy trying to make it. His mom:family deserve closure. Alot of heavy hearts. His ladies will all miss him
    Dearly. Rip wilbert Plummer. May u fly with the angels.
