Reward increases for information in Aurora cold case homicide

AURORA, Colo. -- The Aurora Police Department said Tuesday a reward for information in the homicide of Miguel Freyre-Vieweg has been increased.

Police say the homicide happened on Sept. 28, 2016, about 8 p.m. in the 2000 block of Iola Street.

Freyre-Vieweg was shot in the head and died in a hospital three days later. Investigators have not come up with any solid leads in the two years since Freyre-Vieweg was gunned down.

Denver Metro Crime Stoppers increased the reward to $4,000 and the Aurora Reward Fund is also offering a reward of up to $2,000.

Investigators say individuals can remain anonymous and be eligible for the reward.

Freyre-Vieweg’s mom, Dalila Medrano, said she can’t sleep at night and won’t feel better until she gets answers about what happened to her son.

“Give me the strength. I need to keep living and to take care of my kids. It`s time to come forward and tell the truth. Just tell the truth,” she said.

She said her son left behind a girl who is now 4 years old.
