CLEVELAND - Friends are offering up a massive reward to help solve the murder of a Cleveland Clinic nurse brutally attacked in downtown Cleveland.
On Friday, the Cuyahoga County Crime Stoppers announced that it is offering up $2,000 and friends $23,000 for information leading to the arrest and indictment of the person or people responsible for Aliza Sherman's death.
The groups plan to make the official announcement about he reward next Tuesday during a news conference.
Police said Sherman, 53, of Beachwood, was stabbed on East 12th Street near the Galleria at Erieview Mall on the afternoon of March 24. She was taken to the hospital where she died a short time later.
The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office said the attacker stabbed her 11 times in the head, neck, back and right arm.
The entire incident was caught on Galleria surveillance cameras, a manager at the mall said. The video was turned over to police to help with the investigation.
Cleveland police have not released any images from the video, nor any suspect description. No arrest has been made in the case. However, Chief Michael McGrath told NewsChannel5 last week that Sherman's murder was targeted, and the public is not in immediate danger.
Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 216-252-7463 or via the organization's website: http://www.25crime.com
