CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Officials announced an increase in reward money being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the June murders of Katherine Brown and Carnell Sledge.
The FBI, Cleveland Metroparks Police Department, and Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County are now offering a reward of $30,000; $25,000 from the FBI and $5,000 from Crime Stoppers.
Investigators say 33-year-old Brown and 40-year-old Sledge were shot and killed on the afternoon of June 4 while sitting on a park bench together at the Rocky River Reservation property of the Cleveland Metroparks.

If you have information regarding these unsolved murders, please contact law enforcement immediately. The families and the community need closure.”
