$10K Reward For Info on Spina Murder

The family and friends of Stephen Spina, the Mamaroneck man found murdered in his Mamaroneck Village apartment in 2007, is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of his murderer. (See:  Mamaroneck Man Murdered.)

Funds for the reward were raised at the First Annual Stephen Spina Softball Classic on July 18 and 19.  (See:  thank you from the Spina family. ) Mr. Spina was an avid baseball fan and popular Little League umpire.

The family believes there are individuals who have yet to come forward who could help police in their investigation.

    I think this is an outrage that they still can’t find his killer. He didn’t have to die. Somebody just didn’t like him. Why? Because he was so well liked by many and hated by none. I only knew Steve for a short period of time but in that time I have all nice things to say about him. I myself am a fellow umpire of this league and I know what it’s like to be liked. I hope they find the s.o.b. who did it and punish them to the fullest extent of the law. The Spina family has gone through a lot – all they want is Steve’s killer and peace of mind. Is that so hard to ask?

    It is completely shocking that one murder in such a small town can go unsolved. Hire the right help and get it done. This is a disgrace to our town. Call someone with a reputation for ending cold cases. Steve was a lovely person and his death is an outrage.

    I would suggest increasing the reward to $100K and see how many more people come forward. As awful as it sounds. some one knows who did this and will most likely be swayed by more money. That is the way criminal minds work. You don’t have to watch Law and Order reruns to know this. Speaking of which, I think they need to call in the FBI and CSI to work together. People SHOULD be outraged is right.

    Understand that a reward cannot be increased to $100,000 if there is no $100,000 available for a reward. And you cannot just call in the FBI. Sure more people would come forward with the reward being $100K, but most of the people who would would not have any actual information, they would just come forward in hopes of getting the money. There are so many problems with the legal system in this country and these are just a few. I hope and pray that when they do find the idiot that murdered him they do not find a way to screw it up and he will be punished to the fullest extent of the law!!

    First of all, there are plenty of ways to raise the reward money so you can increase the reward to a serious amount like $100K – after all you’re talking about someone’s life here. And yes you can “just call” in the FBI after a certain amount of time has lapsed with no leads or information. And more appropriately, the Mam’k Cops can and should have done this a long time ago. This murder is nearly two years old now. At this point, the FBI would have been tapped to intervene a long time ago. Beleive it or not, Larchmont/Mam’k has had many FBI agents living amongst us over the years as our neighbors and I do know a thing or two about how they operate.. And I have no doubt they are already involved in this case.. As for people coming forward w/ bogus tips to reap the larger reward – yeah, that’ll happen. But that’s law enforcement’s role to weed through the smoke and mirrors to find out who is legit and who is not. Besides, few “idiots” are even dumb enough to tamper w/ a police investigation in hopes of getting their hands on a reward if they have no knowledge – and let’s not underestimate the intelligence of the local police or the FBI – who will prosecute anyone for tampering w/ evidence and producing false information. This is the 21st century remember – and at the risk of sounding snarky, this is not Mayberry RFD – it’s Westchester County NY.
