Thanks to the generosity of an anonymous donor, the reward for information leading to the arrest of the person suspected in the random shooting deaths of two men in Rogers Park is now up to $150,000.
Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson announced the enhanced reward this afternoon at a press conference in Loyola Park, just steps away from the location of the second shooting. He said this is the largest reward offered in any crime probe in the city’s history.
“We’re hopeful that with the increased reward, persons with direct knowledge of the killer will come forward. Someone knows this person,” Superintendent Johnson said.
If you have information, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-535-7867 or visit cookcountycrimestoppers.org.
You may leave your tip anonymously. You will be given a code and if your information is verified and leads to an arrest, you will be paid the cash reward.
The reward stood at $23,000 until the anonymous donation, made on behalf of the second victim, Eliyahu Moscowitz, increased it to $150,000.
Superintendent Johnson stressed that the Chicago Police are using every resource possible to find this “heinous murderer.” Over the past five weeks, police have pored through hours of video and working 430 independent tips. Our community continues to be patrolled by a substantial number of additional uniformed and plain clothes officers.
“We have many leads, but still need help from the community,” Superintendent Johnson said.
