$10K reward offered for information in Julia Niswender killing
The reward is being offered by the Duvall Group Investigations PLLC., Niswender's family told AnnArbor.com.
"Duvall Group Investigations PLLC has posted the reward," said Kim Turnquist, Niswender’s mother. "The owner, Ryan, has been a family friend for years. We have not hired his services. We are confident that the (Ypsilanti) Police Department will find justice for Julia and my family."
The reward offer comes nearly four months after Niswender was found dead in her apartment on Dec. 11 in Peninsular Place Apartments, off campus in Ypsilanti.
Police ruled the death a homicide in January but have not released details, including how she died.
The flyer states the reward will be given for information "leading to the arrest and indictment of the person or people responsible" for Niswender's death.
"We are just really hoping that this helps spread the word and helps catch whoever did this as soon as possible," said Jennifer Niswender, Julia's twin sister.
Individuals with information are being asked to contact the Michigan State Police at 1-800-SPEAK-UP or the Ypsilanti Police Department at 734-483-9510.
Funds can be donated for distribution costs and flyer costs. Checks or money orders can be sent to the Duvall Group Investigations PLLC at P.O. Box 1822 Monroe, MI 48161, ATTN: Justice for Julia or by calling 1-800-681-0687.
