Now, Crime Stoppers from Summit County, Ohio, offers a reward of $ 50,000 USD for information on the case.
Nickia Crawford, 18, was killed on Sunday. While calls poured into the police, no arrests have been made so far.
“We have already set aside hundreds of hours of work for this crime, and we will continue to do so,” said Jesse Lesser, Akron’s deputy chief of police, at a press conference on Tuesday.
