HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Twenty-nine-year-old Erika Moreno was gunned down in January and officials are no closer to solving her murder. They’re hoping an increase in the reward money will propel someone to step forward for the vital information they need in order to find the person or persons responsible for killing her.

On Wednesday during a press conference, officials stood side by side members of Moreno’s family and pleaded with the public to help them solve Moreno’s murder. Houston Crime Stoppers increased the reward for information leading to an arrest in the case. As of Wednesday, the reward for information leading to answers about the crime was upped to $10,000.

According to Houston police, Moreno was fatally shot on the evening of January 10th. She was gunned down on Birdwood Road, just north of S. Braeswood Boulevard. An unidentified person shot at Moreno while she was in her vehicle. Moreno then drove in reverse and sped onto a grass embankment. She then died from her wounds.

Witnesses told police that they observed a late model, black Chevrolet Tahoe speeding eastbound on Birdwood after the shooting.

With no substantial leads and no motive, authorities and Erika Moreno’s family are pleading with anyone who has information that can lead to the arrest of a suspect or supects to come forward.

Crime Stoppers of Houston’s number is (713) 222-TIPS (8477).
