Crimestoppers to increase reward in all murder cases
ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – St. Louis Regional Crimestoppers is offering more reward money on all active homicide cases. That reward is now $2,000, up from $1,000. This reward is for information leading to arrests of murder suspects.
This means more money for anyone with information leading to the killers of 20-year-old Nicholas Kapusniak, who died in a drive-by shooting on February 28, 2014. The victim was a student at the St. Louis College of Pharmacy, where officials had already helped raise a $10,000 reward.
As for Crimestoppers, this is the first increase for homicide cases since the organization started offering rewards in 2006. Officials say they get about 1,500 tips each year. But, they hope the increased reward will lead to more arrests.
