Santa Cruz Police Request $50,000 From Governor’s Reward Fund For Unsolved Homicide

Police Chief Kevin Vogel requested $50,000 from the Governor’s Reward Fund for the Carl Reimer homicide. Our investigators refuse to give up on the case and believe the offer of a $50,000 will provide an inducement for witnesses to come forward. Chief Vogel has also directed investigators to look at other recent homicides for consideration for the reward.  The Governor's legal affairs unit will process the request and the Governor makes the final determination. As the one year anniversary of the Reimer homicide has just occurred, it is essential that the department does all that is possible to keep the case active.
