Reward increases for unsolved Steelton homicide

Posted: Updated:
STEELTON, Pa. (WHTM) - Dauphin County Crime Stoppers has increased the reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for murder of a Steelton man back in 2009.

The reward was recently increased to up to $2,000.

On August 28, 2009, police said 65-year-old B.J. Richmond died after he was beaten outside his home on the 200 block of North Front Street a month earlier. Police said Richmond was attacked by two men and a head injury put him in a coma, from which he would not recover. Back then a witness provided a vague description, but it wasn’t enough.

Now, officials say they have several suspects in mind but need the community’s help to build the case further. They say they could be a tip away from solving the case.

If they (the public) don't come forward, we'll never get them. We don't have enough forensic evidence to make a case,” Joseph Conjar with the Steelton Police Department said.     

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-262-3080.
