The family of a Clearwater murder victim has announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the killer.
Vasilios "Billy" Vorvis was stabbed in home on the 1400 block of Grove Street on July 6, 2008. He died a short time later at the hospital.
"My brother was the sweetest guy you'd ever want to know, he did not deserve to die like that," his brother said through tears at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.
Detective Thomas Dawe said the family saw another cold case featured in the media recently, and wanted to put Vorvis' murder back in the spotlight in hopes of finding his killer.
Dawe said Vorvis was a work-at-home electrician who had contact with many members of the community, and he does not believe the attack was random.
Dawe said he and the family believe there are members of the community out there that have information, but have not come forward.
"With this reward, we may get some information that we did not have in the past, maybe someone is willing to come forward and not only provide the information, but provide factual evidence or testimony that might help us to a successful prosecution of this case," Dawe said.
After the press conference, family and volunteers distributed fliers out in the neighborhood announcing the $10,000 reward.
To be eligible for the reward, the information must be provided through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-873-TIPS; online at www.crimestoppersofpinellas.org.
