    Jared Bridegan (33) was shot and killed after he stopped to move a tire out of the road

    https://abcnews.go.com/US/months-fat...ry?id=84706584

    It's been three months since her husband was murdered, but Kirsten Bridegan has very few answers as to what happened that night.

    Jared Bridegan, 33, was shot and killed on Feb. 16 in Jacksonville Beach, Florida, when he stopped his car while driving home after dropping off his 9-year-old twins with his ex-wife.

    Kirsten Bridegan believes he stopped the car when he saw a tire in the middle of the road and, rather than drive around, he got out to investigate. Their 2-year-old daughter, Bexley, was in the back seat.

    "Jarod's the kind of guy who would stop and move it so others wouldn't worry about it," she told ABC News.

    The former Microsoft senior manager and father of four was shot, possibly three or four times, Kirsten Bridegan said, in what she described as a targeted attack on Sanctuary Boulevard.

    "I don't buy into the theory that it was random," she said. "Somebody knew his route. They thought maybe he would be alone ... They didn't fully realize there might be a child."

    "I believe he was the target. Some coward trapped him and took him out and that's not OK," she said.

    Since Jared Bridegan's murder in February, First Coast Crime Stoppers has doubled its initial reward to $50,000 for any tips that lead to an arrest, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has offered $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest and conviction.

    Police are investigating a vehicle of interest believed to be a dark-colored, likely blue, Ford F-150 truck dated between 2004 and 2008 in connection to Jared Bridegan's murder. They are also asking if residents know anything about a damaged tire, which they say might be related to the case.

    Sgt. Tonya Tator of the Jacksonville Beach Police Department told ABC News the attack "appears to be targeted."

    The department is working on the case and pursuing leads, as well as waiting for results from forensic testing, Tator said.

    In the wake of her best friend's murder, Kirsten Bridegan said, some days are better than others.

    She described her husband as a creative, fun and loving father who would do anything for his four kids -- his twins, Abby and Liam, Bexley and the couple's eight-month-old daughter, London, who was home with Kirsten at the time of the murder.

    "He loved being a dad. He genuinely did," she told ABC News. "He would spend hours setting up some activity that he thought would be awesome."

    From baking competitions and obstacle courses, to laser tag and their tradition of making toothpick boats to float outside in the rain, "he really went above and beyond to make memories and bond with his kids," she said.

    Now, she is asking the public for help by asking for people to keep an eye our for the truck and to share her husband's story.

    "The more we know, the more eyes we have, that's what we need help with. It's been three months, they could have disappeared," she said. "The further we get this spread, the better."

    Kirsten Bridegan has created Instagram and TikTok accounts to spread the word about her husband's murder and to help collect tips.

    Anyone with information can contact First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS (8477) or visit the FCCS website, and they can also call the Jacksonville Beach Police Department at 904-270-1667.

    I wonder why they think it's targeted? They paint the picture if him being some really awesome guy. To be targeted, you would think you had enemies.

    They don't bring up the ex wife much. I wonder if that's who they're suspecting had a hand in it.

    They most definitely suspect the ex wife. Well, his family does. I'm not sure about the police.

    BTW, this is my hometown, so I have been following it closely.

    Here is the ex-wife's FB: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100010164813506

    Her business: https://www.facebook.com/BeachBaked904

    Also, her husband is being accused of shooting cats in their neighborhood:

    If anyone lives in the Sanctuary or Marsh Landing in Jax Beach and are missing a cat, please read! Trigger warning ? animal cruelty.
    This couple is being investigated for a different crime, however the husband shot and killed neighborhood cats because his ?dogs would bark at them in the middle of the night and wake them up.? I?m heartbroken. You can find their local business page, to make sure you don?t inadvertently support it. It?s on Facebook as Beach Baked 904 and it?s owned by Shanna Gardner-Fernandez and Mario Fernandez. I?m crying at the thought of them killing our babies!

    I immediately thought the ex-wife is involved. He had just dropped off his kids with her, so she knew where he would be.

    I suspect the ex wife too, but, if she planted the tire, how did they know the exact time that he would come across it, or if he would even get out of the car?

    She might not have physically put the tire there, but I think she is behind it. Jared had just dropped off his twins to his ex-wife's house. Someone with knowledge of that happening would have known his route in and out to the ex-wife's house and planted the tire in the road.

    I'm kind of surprised that nobody has commented on the photos on that page about any of this considering that someone posted about it.
