The City of Pasadena will be offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction in any existing unsolved Pasadena murder case.
In the past 10 years, there have been 53 homicides in Pasadena and seven remain unsolved. In order to claim a reward, you must provide information to the Pasadena Police Department which leads to the apprehension and conviction of the party responsible for the homicide. If there are multiple claims, they will be reviewed in determining whether one claimant receives the entire $5,000 reward or, in the alternative, the $5,000 reward is split among claimants.
“Solving these murders and ensuring public safety is of paramount importance to our Police Department. We want to bring justice to the families affected by these tragedies and hope that the reward money will provide an incentive for anyone with information to come forward,” states City Manager Steve Mermell.
Pasadena Police detectives continue to follow up on information that has been provided on all cases and will thoroughly investigate any new leads.
Information may also be reported anonymously by calling “Crime Stoppers” at (800) 222-TIPS (8477) or using your smartphone by downloading the “P3 Tips” mobile app on Google Play or the Apple App Store or by using the website lacrimestoppers.org. Crime Stoppers offers up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for crimes committed in Los Angeles County, and you may remain anonymous. That $1,000 reward would be in addition to any reward offered by the city.
