“The reward is being offered because sometimes that expedites  the whole crime solving process.

Errigo’s body was located  by two hunters on Sunday,. October 22nd near the Discovery neighborhood in a wooded area in the 9300 block of Old Liberty Road. “Errigo was found with obvious trauma to his body,” says Russo. “Police are looking for  any leads that might have them get closer to solving this case.”

“Our investigators believe that when they’re a cash award put up that some people may think ‘maybe I can make a different in the lives of the family of Mr. Errigo, and actually get rewarded for coming forth with some information,'” says Russo. “We do believe it will expedite the process of solving a crime sometimes when a cash reward is offered.”
