Gov. Newsom announces rewards for four unsolved crimes

Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday announced four $50,000 rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrators of unsolved murders in Fresno, San Pablo, Visalia and unincorporated Butte County.

California law authorizes the governor to offer rewards in certain unsolved cases for information leading to apprehension of the perpetrators.

Law enforcement agencies may ask the governor to issue rewards in certain unsolved cases where they have exhausted all investigative leads to encourage individuals with information about the crimes to come forward.

Public assistance is vital to law enforcement, and rewards may encourage public cooperation essential to apprehend those who have committed serious offenses.

Monday’s rewards issued by the governor involve the following cases:
