Reward Increased in Unsolved Murder Case

Posted: Updated:

The reward for information in a murder that happened one year ago has been increased and the victim's daughter is now speaking out.

Julie Miller, 68, was shot and killed last August in the parking lot of the Suncoast Hotel and Casino.

Miller was leaving the hotel with her husband when someone approached their car and tried to rob them.

Miller's husband was also shot but he recovered from his injuries.  Although the killer was caught on surveillance tape, he has never been found.

Miller's daughter, Stephanisia Westbrook, has added another $10,000 to the reward money, bringing the total to $122,000.  She is hoping the extra money will rekindle interest in the case.

"There wasn't anything that Mom and I didn't share," Westbrook said.  Her mother was helping her plan her wedding only moments before the shooting happened.  Mother and daughter had been talking on the phone trying to work out details.

Westbrook has watched the past year go by without any leads in her mother's murder case.

"As cold as it is, the money might be the bottom line for giving a tip and taking this monster off the streets," she says.

Westbrook wants the man who took her mother to pay. 

"I light a candle for her every night and I say a prayer to her," Westbrook added.   She says she will not rest until her mother's killer is found.
