21 Dec L.A. County Supervisor Barger Offers $20,000 Reward for Information About the Murder of Jaquarius “Jay” Quinn
Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger is offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of 17-year-old Palmdale resident Jaquarius “Jay” Quinn.
“The senseless murder of this youth in 2016 is still unresolved and has left his family and the community at large searching for answers,” said Supervisor Barger. “I’m hopeful that providing this monetary reward will help us find whoever is responsible and hold them accountable. Justice for Jaquarius must be served.”
To date, investigators from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department are still actively working on the case. “This youth was a good kid by all accounts,” said Lieutenant Brandon Dean with the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau. “He wasn’t a gang member, he had no prior involvement with the law. We ask anyone who has information about this case to please step forward and contact us. Every bit of information helps.”
Anyone with information about this shooting can call the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau General Hotline at (323) 890-5500. Anonymous tips can also be called in to the Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1 (800) 222-TIPS (8477) or online at lacrimestoppers.org.
