Jason Abraham, partner with the law firm of Hupy andAbraham,S.C., was recently interviewed by TV One to discuss the murder of up-and-coming R&B singer Yolanda “La La” Brown and her boyfriend/producer Je Tannue “Kool-Aid” Clayborn. The firm announced a reward for anyone who was able to provide information leading to an arrest in the murders, which occurred back in 2007.
Abraham and the law firm have become very passionate about helping solve local crimes throughout Milwaukee that eight years ago, they began working with the Milwaukee Police Department by offering rewards to find wanted suspects and still do so to this day.
In 2004, a $5,000 reward was offered by Hupy andAbrahamto help locate a prankster who wrapped plastic wrap across two street poles, causing a motorcyclist and his girlfriend to be thrown off and severely injured. The prankster was given up a few days later and the reward was given.
In 2006, the law firm received sad news that one of their employee’s brothers was murdered for his tennis shoes. Immediately, a reward of $5,000 was offered to find the murderer and put him behind bars, and within days, Abraham and his staff were informed that an arrest was made.
The murder of up-and-coming talent, La La Brown, was something the Milwaukee-based law firm felt could not be ignored and that it needed to help take action to find the person responsible for this horrible act.
"We are so disgusted that no one has come forward regarding the La La Brown murder,” said Abraham, “so we decided to try to help the process along. It seemed like such a senseless act that we just felt compelled to do something.”
When the case first arose, Hupy andA braham put up a reward of $2,500 for any information leading to the arrest of the La La Brown murdererto help the grieving Brown family find their daughter’s killer. After three months of dead-end leads, the law firm decided to increase the reward to $5,000.
Unfortunately, the case has gone cold with no potential leads. TV One hopes that airing a documentary regarding the murders will help bring justice to the murder victims and their families. The documentary featuring the law firm will air within the next few months.
Hupy and Abraham hopes that someone will come forward and do the right thing for La La Brown and her family one day soon. If you or someone you know has any information leading to an arrest in the La La Brown murder, please call the Milwaukee Police Department at 414- 935-7360.
