Ashland sets up reward fund in bike path slaying
Thursday, January 19, 2012
ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The Ashland City Council has agreed to set up a reward fund in the slaying of 23-year-old David Grubbs.
He was nearly decapitated as he walked home from work on a bike path in November. Police say they have no suspects.
The Daily Tidings (http://bit.ly/zv5oqI ) reported Thursday the council has agreed to a fund financed by public donations and administered by the city.
A $1,500 Crimestoppers reward had been set up. Some residents said they were concerned that if police solved the crime without a tip, the money would go back into Crimestoppers.
If the Grubbs case is solved without a tip, or the City Council finds the fund isn't useful, people who donated $50 or more would get a refund. Smaller donations would go to the police department.
