"We believe there is information out there that could aid the police department in solving this case," Crime Stoppers Board President Nick Amarr said. "We are hoping this will give someone incentive to come forward."
A further search of the area in the spring led to the discovery of the remains of four additional people. One set of remains has been identified as that of Jessica Taylor. Partial remains of Taylor's body were discovered in Manorville in 2003. The other three sets of remains have yet to be identified.
"The Crime Stoppers program is an important tool for police in furthering their investigations," Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer said. "The combined efforts of the Crime Stoppers board and public support have brought successful conclusions to hundreds of Suffolk County cases. I am hopeful that the increased reward will provide critical information to help bring those responsible to justice."
