$150,000 Reward in Rogers Park Murders

Police Supt. Eddie Johnson announced today that the reward for information leading to the capture of the killer of Douglass Watts and Eliyahu Moscowitz has increased to $150,000. This is the largest reward ever offered in Chicago history. He said the reward  increased due to “…the generosity of an anonymous donor.”

The donation was made in behalf of Mr. Moscowitz, fatally shot as he walked in Loyola Park last month. The announcement was made near the spot where Mr. Moscowitz died.

The Superintendent noted that police have continued to search for the killer over the past 5 weeks. They are asking once again for the public’s  help. You can report your information anonymously, at which time you will be given a code that can be used to claim the reward should your information be verified and lead to the apprehension of the murderer.

    • Thank you. Rub joins the many other store closings in the neighborhood. It was out of the SSA area so didn’t get any promotional help from them. Silverstein does not actively publicize and promote neighborhood businesses the way aldermen in other areas do.
