ANTONOVICH INCREASES REWARD FOR
INFORMATION ON MURDER OF 16-YEAR OLD GIRL
LOS ANGELES COUNTY – Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich has increased the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the death of Samantha Salas, a 16-year old youth, to $20,000.
On Saturday, January 26, 2008, Miss Salas was fatally shot while walking with a friend, in the 2500 block of Peck Road near Longden Avenue in the unincorporated area of Monrovia after being approached by two male suspects on foot.
The two suspects are described as African-American in their 20’s, wearing dark colored bandanas or hooded sweatshirts, and members of the Du Rock Crips gang.
The Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Homicide Bureau Investigators support the increase of the reward offer of $10,000 to $20,000 in the hopes of generating more leads in their investigation.
Supervisor Antonovich encourages witnesses of this crime or anyone with information to contact Lt. Dan Rosenberg at the Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5580.
