CINCINNATI — A family has offered up a reward for information about the decade-old unsolved murder of their son, Christopher Minor.

He was killed on June 15, 2010 at around 5:00 p.m. during his shift at the since-closed Alston Brothers Car Wash on Dana Avenue in Evanston. He was only 27 years old.

"Somebody knows something and I know they do," said Linda Minor, Christopher's mother.

In the decade since his death, the search for answers hasn't slowed down for Linda, even as the amount of information and tips to police have ground to a halt. The family gathered at Christopher's grave on Saturday for a vigil, to remember him and to call for information about the person who killed him.

"He was murdered," said Linda. "An innocent person. And the one that they were shooting at, he got away."

Linda said her son was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Crimestoppers has already offered a reward for information in Christopher's murder, but the Minor family has added $5,000 to that, bringing the reward total to $7,500.

"It shouldn't take money for you to do the right thing," said Peggy Harris, a close friend of Linda's, who also lost a son to gun violence. "But if it does take money, they have it out there. So please come forward and help this family get some closure."

Anyone with information about the murder of Christopher Minor can call Crimestoppers at 513.352.3040.
