The father of the victim in an ongoing homicide investigation has told investigators with the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office that he is willing to add to the reward for information to help identify a suspect.

Deputies say 34-year-old Michael Partridge of Sun Valley was found shot dead in a home on September 29, 2017 near Lupin and Honeybear Streets.

This week, the victim’s father, Michael Partridge Sr., informed detectives that he would offer $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of a suspect. The father’s reward is in addition, and separate, from a $2,500 Secret Witness reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect or suspects in this investigation.

Deputies say the victim also had connections to the Las Vegas area. 

Detectives say that Partridge lived in Las Vegas prior to moving to northern Nevada. They believe someone may know something, no matter how insignificant it may seem, that could help the investigation.

Anyone who may have information should call Washoe County Detectives at (775) 328-3320 or Secret Witness at (775) 322-4900, or text your tip to 8478411. Your tip will remain anonymous.
