Columbus Mom Raises Reward Money to Find Son's Killer
COLUMBUS (Steve Levine/Ken Hines) -- A central Ohio mom is fighting back by raising reward money to assist in the search for her sons killer.
Zachary White, 19, was gunned down last September while leaving a home on Manchester Avenue in the North Linden area.
S.W.A.T. officers closed off a portion of the neighborhood searching for suspects shortly after White and his girlfriend were shot, but no suspects were found.
Whites girlfriend was wounded in the hand; he died at the scene.
People know what happened, saw what happened, but they are scared,Zacharys mom, Debra Kenney, said.
Kenney and family members have raised thousands of dollars to increase a Crime Stoppers reward to $10,000 for information about her son's murder.
I did a little bit of everything to be able to come up with it, Kenney said. [I] sold things, family helped out.
The case received a huge setback last year, when charges were dismissed against two suspects because of a lack of evidence.
We know people are out there, we know people witnessed this, we need them to step forward so we can get into the next phase of the investigation, Columbus Police Homicide Detective Christ Holzhauser said.
A cash reward will be offered to anyone who provides information that leads to the arrest or indictment of the person or people responsible for the murder.
