Special Agents from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, commonly known as CID, are offering a $25,000 reward to anyone with information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the 2009 murder of U.S. Army Soldier Sgt. Anton R. Phillips at Forward Operating Base (FOB) Mehtar Lam, Afghanistan.

Phillips, 31, was stabbed by an unknown person(s) around 8:00 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2009, between Pease Park and his living quarters on FOB Mehtar Lam. Phillips was assigned to the 5th Maintenance Company, 2nd Battalion, 77th Field Artillery Regiment, at the time of his death.
“We have reason to believe that someone in the Colorado Springs area knows something about the untimely death of this Soldier and we are not giving up, but determined to bring those responsible to justice” said CID spokesman Chris Grey. “We strongly encourage anyone with information to contact us immediately.”
Anyone with information regarding this case should immediately contact the Bagram CID Office via DSN: (318) 481-6567/6134 or contact the nearest Army CID Office.
Individuals wishing to remain anonymous will be honored to the degree allowable under the law and the information will be held in the strictest confidence allowable.
