Still no answers in murder of Phoenix grandfatherPosted: Updated:
GILBERT--Four years after a Valley grandfather and real estate developer as found murdered, his family hopes a $100,000 reward will help find his killer.
Ed Forst, 56, was found in his car shot to death near a Phoenix gas station on June 21st, 2007. Since then police have been on the hunt for his killers.
"We need to find closure. One: to know we've done everything we can for him, and most of all to get the killer off the street, because I'm confident they'll do this again, or maybe they have already," said Mike Forst, the victim's son.
Family and friends marked the fourth anniversary of Forst's death by walking the neighborhood near the crime scene near 27th avenue and McDowell, hanging signs with the reward information.
"It's all about saturating and trying to get that one witness or one person who has information," said Sgt. Darren Burch of Silent Witness.
Police have descriptions of two suspects and vehicles that may have been involved.
Suspect #1: Hispanic male, 25-28 years old, 5'6" to 5'8", 160-170lbs, shaved head, wearing a white sleeveless shirt and jeans shorts.
Suspect #2: Hispanic male, 20-21 years old, thin build.
Vehicle #1: 1990's black Nissan Altima, AZ plate.
Vehicle #2: 1990's dark blue or green small four door vehicle.
