Seminole Heights, Tampa, FL — Police have offered a reward up to $100,000 “for information that helps solve the Seminole Heights homicides” as more parties throughout the Tampa area have contributed to the fund. Mayor Bob Buckhorn said that,
We need to and will find who’s committing these heinous, senseless murders and when we do, it will be because of people like Richard, the Seminole Heights community, Tampa Police Department and our partners in the law enforcement community who have poured their blood, sweat and tears into bringing this killer to justice.”
How do rewards like this work? The money comes from different facets of the community—most of it is from law enforcement partners, but some are from fundraisers within the community and donations from private citizens. A local restaurant owner donated $9,000 to the fund.
The Tampa PD urges locals “with any information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873 (TIPS).”
