Raleigh commission to help fund cold cases reward
BECKLEY, W.Va. – The Raleigh County Commission is contributing $5,000 to a reward for information leading to convictions in seven cold-case slayings.
The Register-Herald reports that commissioners voted Tuesday to fund half of the $10,000 reward. The contribution will go to Crime Stoppers.
The reward is limited to seven unsolved murders in Raleigh County.
Crime Stoppers President Butch Fink says the oldest case is the fatal shooting of Cynthia Miller in 1981. The 27-year-old teacher was killed in her apartment on the evening before her wedding.
