There was evidence from the crime scene and police have some leads to follow up on, however, more information is needed to solve this crime.
If you leave a tip, Crime Stoppers will pay you a cash reward of up to two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500) if your information leads to the arrest of the perpetrators. The Crime Stopper tipline can be accessed anytime of the day or night at 788-8427; or you can leave an anonymous tip on this website (Cashfortips.us).
