BRADENTON - Police hope a reward will help them crack an unsolved murder. $15,000 is now being offered for tips in the death of Rene Salinas.

On December 9th, police responded to the intersection at 27th Street East where they found Salinas' body inside a car. They believe someone shot him as he was driving through the intersection.

At the time of his death, his family put up a $9,000 reward in addition to the $1,000 already being offered.

The reward grew again Wednesday, with a $5,000 commitment from the Gold Star Club.

Police are now hoping for new leads. Anyone with information is asked to call Manatee County Crime Stoppers at 866-634-TIPS.
