ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, Md. — Anne Arundel County has had twenty-three homicides in 2018. Six of them remain unsolved.
"A lot of these cases are very, very, very close to closure. Detectives just need one or two puzzle pieces on them," said Sgt. Jacklyn Davis.
That's why county police are adding a $10,000 reward to each of them, saying any information can be helpful.
"We ask people to come forward with any tips that they may have. Even if you think it's trivial, even if you think it's insignificant, it might be the missing piece the detectives have been looking," said Sgt. Jacklyn Davis.
These cases go back to January 1st when Lawrence Aaron III was shot in the back, to August 15th when Jasmine Adams was killed in her home, to the most recent unsolved case of Quenton Boykin who was shot and killed on November 11th in Glen Burnie.
There are several different ways to pass on information if you know anything about these deaths.
"You can go to a police station, you can go to headquarters, you can send a letter, or you can call the tip line," said Sgt. Jacklyn Davis.
County police say tips from the public did help point the murder of Steven Wilson, the Real Estate agent killed last week. That case was solved in 31 hours, mainly from information that came from the community.
"We are asking community members that have information to help us, help you. Help u make your community safer," said Sgt. Jacklyn Davis.
