If you have any information about his whereabouts or have a tip about the homicide case, contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. The Denver Police say that all of the other individuals they were searching for in connection to the killing have been located; none are in custody.

Seventeen-year-old Grant-Cobb was stabbed outside of Bourbon Grill on East Colfax Avenue on July 1. He later died from his injuries. Grant-Cobb was a star football player at East High School, playing as a starter during his junior and senior years. He was set to study bio-medical engineering at the University of Northern Colorado next year.

"Those people don't know what they took from us," Drew Gould, a close friend and football teammate of Grant-Cobb's, wrote in a message to Westword.

Grant-Cobb's funeral will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 17, at the City Park Pavilion. His family is also planning a “day of service” on July 20, which would have been Reese’s eighteenth birthday. More details will be announced on the Mo’ Betta Green MarketPlace Facebook page; Reese's mother, Beverly Grant, runs Mo' Betta. (Donate here to help Grant-Cobb's family with funeral costs.)
