Police have put up fresh posters spreading the word about a $2,500 reward for information about the homicide of Tessa Majors, a Barnard freshman who was killed on Dec. 11 in Morningside Park near 116th Street. Police first offered the reward immediately after the incident, and put posters up on Broadway, our tipster wrote. But the new posters were put up near Morningside Park. The ones in the photos above and below are from 110th Street at the corner of the park.
Police arrested a 13-year-old boy two days after the killing and charged him with felony murder, which means they don’t think he was the one who stabbed Majors. They also reportedly believe two other minors were involved, one of whom stabbed her. But though they questioned one of the boys, they didn’t arrest him. The Times reported before the New Year that the police are hoping DNA evidence helps them close the case.
