On December 12, 2012, at 11 a.m., LAPD Newton Homicide detectives held a press conference at Newton Station that was attended by the media for both the English and Spanish speaking communities.  The media coverage was exceptional and detectives announced a $50,000 reward offer by the City Council for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the unknown male Hispanic suspect.
