WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A make-shift memorial is set up outside the home of Monday's double murder crime scene in Wichita Falls. As that memorial continues to grow with candles, flowers and a banner of condolences on North 3rd Street, so has the reward Crimes Stoppers is offering to solve the case.
The reward is $1,500 more than usual, totaling $2,500, plus an additional $500 if your information leads to an arrest by noon Wednesday.
Investigators said they have gotten some information, but the more tips they get, the better the chance they have of solving this crime. Sergeant Harold McClure, with the Wichita Falls Police Department, says getting information as soon as possible makes a huge impact on the case.
"It could be the difference between a closed case and a cold case. What I mean by that is after the first 48 hours, the chances of solving the crime is basically cut in half," said Sgt. McClure.
Sergeant McClure said the longer time goes by without talking to police, people's stories can change and affect the ultimate outcome.
