Greenville police say a $25,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to a conviction in the homicide investigation of 16-year-old Alicia Moore.

Moore's body was found last November, days after she disappeared after getting off the school bus.  To date, no arrests have been made in connection with the teen's slaying.

Greenville Police Chief Dan Busken said Tuesday the investigation into Moore's murder is ongoing and therefore wouldn't reveal any details about the ongoing, active case.

Busken said Tuesday that the new $25,000 reward is being funded by $5,000 donations from the Hunt County Crime Stoppers, the Hunt County District Attorney, the Van Zandt County District Attorney, the Van Zandt County Sheriff and the Xerox Corporation, the employer of the victim's mother.

The reward will be paid for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Moore's murderer.  Information given to police is confidential and those sharing information will remain anonymous, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Hunt County Crime Stoppers at 903-457-2929 or by visiting www.huntcountycrimestoppers.com.  Tipsters can also share information through texts and SMS.

A reward was previously offered in the case, though they were shut down by the family after there were growing concerns of  people trying to use their name to make money off of the tragedy.
