Reward for information leading to capture of serial rapist up to $15,000

An additional $3,000 has been added to the reward fund to capture a serial rapist who has struck five times in the Waldo and Brookside areas from September 2009 to February 2010. The total reward now stands at $15,000. The recent donations to the fund came from the Waldo Area Business Association, Armour Hills Neighborhood Association and Vetta Studio 213.

Police have received nearly 800 tips on this case to date and encourage you to call the Crimestoppers TIPS Hotline at 816-474-TIPS (8477) if you have any information you think could help solve the case. You can also submit tips electronically at or by texting "TIP452" and your information to CRIMES (274637). You could be eligible for $15,000 in reward money.

Additional reward donations can be made to the Waldo Reward Fund at any UMB Bank.
