ST. LOUIS – In an effort to bring more leads in to solve the recent murders of children in the city of St. Louis, CrimeStoppers extended the deadline for the rewards for tips.
The deadline for $25,000 rewards in for tips to solve four murders expires Tuesday, September 10th.
Aside from rewards to give people incentive to come forward, everyday people are also stepping up to make a difference.
They are not large organizations but small groups of people pushing to do what they can to get a message out.
In South City, a group sang songs and prayed with the wishes to take back their neighborhood in light of gun violence.
In North City, at a separate gathering, children held signs reading “let us grow up.”
There were more prayers and balloons released in memory of children whose lives were cut short.
The City of St. Louis put forth efforts to find it justice for 10-year-old Eddie Hill, 8-year-old Jurnee Thompson, 2-year-old Kayden Johnson, and a 3-year-old Kennedy Powell by collaborating with donors to offer rewards for tips to solve their murders.
Now it’s not only city officials. Every day people have joined in searching for ways to garner a glimmer of hope and change.
People wanting to submit anonymous tips to CrimeStoppers can call 1-866-371-8477.
