The family of a 72-year-old woman slain in her Anaheim knitting shop is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of her killer, police said Tuesday.
The body of Alvina Lucy Murdaugh of Santa Ana was discovered May 20 in a work area of Aldea's Knit Shop in the 1100 block of Kraemer Boulevard.
Murdaugh had been running a knitting shop for more than 20 years, selling supplies and holding classes.
"We want to plead with anybody who knows anything," said Mike Lemon, 43, Murdaugh's son-in-law.
"Maybe this money will help. Maybe somebody out there saw it or was involved or knows who did it. Maybe this can help them start a life."
Lemon and his wife, Ginger, who is Murdaugh's daughter, pooled the money in part from the sale of the knitting shop and in part from his salary as a grocery store meat cutter and hers as a cashier in Pinedale, Ariz., he said.
