$5,000 Reward Offered For Information In Murders Of Concord, New Hampshire Couple

CONCORD, N.H. (CBS) – A $5,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to arrests in the murders of New Hampshire couple Stephen and Djeswende Reid.

They left their home in the Alton Woods apartment complex in Concord on April 18 to go for a walk. They were reported missing by their family two days later, then found shot to death on a walking trail on April 21.

Concord Police have received more than 130 tips in the case, but there have been no arrests.

"The fact they're giving a reward tells me they haven't made that much progress, they need help," said Doug Ponusky, who lives near the trails. "Unsettling that it just happened, murder doesn't happen often, not around here."

The Concord Regional Crimeline announced the $5,000 reward Thursday morning.

"Rewards are consistently offered by crimelines throughout the state and region," said Geoff Ward, New Hampshire's Senior Assistant Attorney General. "It says nothing with respect to whether there are information or leads in this case. I think we're making progress everyday with significant resources dedicated."

Police are also asking anyone with dashboard camera video from driving on Loudon Road or Portsmouth Street on April 18th and anyone who was hiking or biking in the Broken Ground Trails area from the 17th through the 19th to contact them.

"I'm just wondering if there's more to the story than we know. It's odd a couple just gunned down in the woods," said Joe DeVitto, who lives in the apartment complex where the couple lived.

Anyone with information should call the Crimeline at (603) 226-3100, visit their website or text message TIP234 and your message to CRIMES (274637).

"It is crucial that any person who has any information regarding these murders report to the police what information is known to them, no matter how inconsequential the person believes the information may be," New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella's office said in a statement.
