In [an] early August telephone call, an unknown person provided pieces of information about a possible suspect in Beverly's disappearance from Halloran Park on Cleveland's West Side on the night of Aug. 24, 1951.
Police investigated the information provided by the caller and found it to be accurate. But they need more, so they've increased the standard Crime Stoppers reward to $15,000 from the standard $2,500.
"The major part of our most recent tip is very intriguing," said Rich McIntosh, Crime Stoppers interim director. "A piece of it was specific enough to check out, but we need more specificity to proceed. Our investigators need this person to call back."
