Originally, Crime Stoppers of Sangamon and Menard Counties were only offering the enhanced reward of $5,000 through the end of September. The $5,000 Enhanced Reward Program has been extended through the month of October 2016 in hopes that more people will come forward anonymously to help.

If anyone wishes to submit a tip in the Cold Case Enhanced Reward Program, they can either call, text or submit their tip online. Those calling in should call 217-788-8427. Call-in tips can be submitted at any time.
