Reward Offered In Nanticoke Homicide Case

The random act of violence inspired former Nanticoke Police Officer Kevin Grevera to start a reward fund.
Nanticoke, Luzerne County -- "A lot of us are outraged. We're law abiding citizens, and it's just disgusting what's happening in this town."

Investigators returned to the scene of a deadly discovery in Nanticoke. State police said someone killed 97-year-old Gertrude Price in her E. Grand St. home Thanksgiving night. The random act of violence inspired former Nanticoke Police Officer Kevin Grevera to start a reward fund. Grevera offered $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. He posted the idea on Facebook, and several people stopped by his business, The Hunting Depot, to contribute to the campaign.

"I made the offer to contribute to his fund in the hopes that other people would see it," said Vern Treat.

He donated $100 to the reward fund. Treat is a frequent customer at Grevera's store, and he's happy that someone is helping the victim's family.

"It's phenomenal!" said Treat. "It says a lot about his character and who he is, and I'm real proud that somebody would step up like that."

Grevera had a personal reason behind his actions. His grandfather was beaten and robbed in a home invasion years ago. That crime was never solved, so Grevera and the rest of the Nanticoke community is hoping this case will end differently.

The reward fund will be set up at PNC Bank on Monday. For more information, visit: www.facebook.com/hunting.depot?fref=ts.
