Family of Sun Valley Homicide Victim Increases Reward for Information
The parents of the victim in an ongoing Sheriff’s Office homicide investigation are increasing the reward they are willing to offer for information to help identify a suspect.
The Washoe County Sheriff's Office is again asking for the public's help in finding a suspect in a Sun Valley homicide case.
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, his parents told Washoe County Sheriff’s office detectives that they are willing to add an addition $1,000 to the $1,000 reward they offered last year. The family’s $2,000 reward is separate from and in addition to a $2,500 reward offered by Secret Witness.
“Our investigators firmly believe there are people who have information that can help with this investigation,” Washoe County Sheriff’s Office Detective Lieutenant Max Brokaw said. “We are asking those people to come forward, anonymously through Secret Witness if they prefer, to help bring some degree of closure and comfort to those who have lost a loved one.
Deputies say the victim 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.
