$5,000 posted for each of nine open homicide cases Arrest and conviction required in order to collect
MOUNT HOLLY, N.J. – Burlington County Prosecutor Robert D. Bernardi announced that $45,000 in reward money is being posted in an effort to gain information from the public that will help close nine unsolved homicides dating back to June 2015.
Five of the homicides occurred in Willingboro, two in Pemberton Township and one each in Beverly City and Florence. The causes of death in every instance were related to gunshot wounds. The investigations into all of the cases are active and ongoing.
A $5,000 reward is being posted for each homicide. Willingboro Public Safety Director Gregory Rucker, Pemberton Township Police Chief David H. Jantas, Beverly City Public Safety Director Rich Wolbert and Florence Township Police Chief John A. Bunce joined Prosecutor Bernardi in appealing to those with knowledge of the killings to assist with the efforts to solve these cases.
“We know there are witnesses - or people who have information about these homicides - and we hope this reward money encourages them to come forward and help apprehend those who are responsible for these killings,” Prosecutor Bernardi said. “We are also fully aware of the mindset of some people on the street that the police should not be assisted with solving crimes. I’m asking the public to have the courage to reject that line of thinking. There is no honor in allowing a murderer to go unpunished. Please help us to protect our communities by removing these perpetrators from society.”
Prosecutor Bernardi emphasized that the reward money will only be given if the information provided leads to an arrest and a conviction. Those who have information concerning these homicides should call Burlington County Central Communications at 609-265-7113 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org All contacts will be held in strict confidence.
The details that can be released about these homicides are limited because the investigations are ongoing. Reward posters with the pictures of the victims will be distributed in the areas where the killings occurred.
The investigations into these homicides are being conducted by detectives from the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office and police departments from Beverly City, Florence Township, Pemberton Township and Willingboro Township.
