UPDATE: The reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the shooting death of former St. Louis University volleyball player Megan Boken on Aug. 18 has increased from $10,000 to $30,000.

The Central West End Neighborhood Security Initiative (NSI) offered a $10,000 reward immediately following the shooting. Early Tuesday afternoon it was announced that an anonymous donor had offered an additional $10,000 to the reward. On Wednesday, Washington University School of Medicine added $10,000 to the reward, bringing the total to $30,000.

Boken, 23, was shot and killed while sitting in her parked car on Saturday, Aug. 18, at the intersection of Maryland and North Taylor in the Central West End. Police believe she was the victim of a robbery, and had struggled with her assailant.

The suspect wanted in Boken's murder is described as a black male with a medium complexion, 5-feet 8-inches to 5-feet 10-inches tall, with a thin build and short hair. He was wearing a grey/charcoal shirt, khaki pants and white tennis shoes.
