The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today approved a $20,000 reward for an individual whose information and assistance led to the successful apprehension and conviction of the person responsible for the murder of Marcus Nieto.
Nieto was last seen alive on February 15, 2013. Two horseback riders on the Altadena Crest horse trail found his body the next morning. The Medical Examiner-Coroner’s subsequent investigation found that Nieto suffered blunt force trauma to the head and suggested that he was murdered where his body was found on a trail on the 3800 block of Canon Boulevard in Altadena.
Supervisor Kathryn Barger, who introduced multiple reward extension motions, shared her perspective on reaching this milestone in Nieto’s murder:
Today’s approval of the reward payout is a testament to our Board’s commitment to compensate individuals who courageously step forward and help solve a crime. I believe rewards work and bring justice to family members and loved ones who have gone through the pain of losing someone near and dear to them. Perseverance is key.
