Reward To Be Offered For Information Regarding The Murder Of Officer Decker
12/17/2012 - 11:30 AM
Authorities investigating last month's shooting death of a Cold Spring police officer plan to announce a reward of up to $100,000 for information in the case. Information on the reward has been posted on the Department of Public Safety's website.
Anyone with information related to this case is asked to contact the Stearns County Sheriff's Office at 1-877-782-5683 or the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension at 1-877-996-6222 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the Stearns County Sheriff's Office held a news conference in St. Paul Monday afternoon. A news release says officials are offering the reward in hopes that someone comes forward with information that helps solve the case.
Thirty-one-year-old Tom Decker was fatally shot Nov. 29 as he investigated a report of a possibly suicidal man. Police arrested a 34-year-old suspect an hour later. But he was released five days later after police and prosecutors agreed they didn't have the evidence to support filing charges.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says investigators are continuing to follow leads and gather evidence.
