Central Ohio Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest or indictment on the murder of 17-year-old Dennis Lewis, almost 5 years after his death.
10 Investigates has been working on an investigation that is tracking down suspects in the five-year-old case.
10TV has learned that suspects connected to the 2008 murder could have ties to southern Ohio, specifically in Scioto County.
On Friday, Crime Stoppers officials sent out another plea for information about the case.
On Jan. 18, 2008 five armed, masked men entered Lewis ‘ north Columbus home at approximately 1:30 a.m. The intruders held Dennis’ mom April Lewis at gunpoint, then broke into Dennis’ room and beat him bloody before shooting him.
Dennis died as a result of injuries, and his twin Derris, was falsely accused of the crime.
The charges against Derris were dropped in 2009 after a mistrial in the case.
Derris’ attorney Adam Nemann has offered $5,000 of his own money for information that leads to a conviction in the case.
Anyone with information is asked to call Central Ohio Crime Stoppers at 614-645-8477 or text 72008, Keyword TIP.
