The reward total for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the murderers of Menachem Stark, a 39-year-old father of seven who was kidnapped and killed this weekend in Brooklyn has been raised to $72,000.
The Stark family has raised their total contribution to $50,000, and yesterday at a press conference, Police Commissioner William Bratton announced that the NYPD was offering an additional $20,000, and the NYPD Crime Stoppers program putting up an additional $2,000.
Rabbi David Niederman, Executive Director of United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg, said, “We have increased the reward in the hopes that anyone and everyone who knows anything comes forward. There are 7 orphans in Brooklyn, and a loving grieving wife – and we hope and pray there will be justice.
We thank the law enforcement community for their hard work, and echo Commissioner Bratton’s call for the public’s assistance in solving this case.”
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
