Los Angeles officials are offering a $25,000 reward for information that helps solve the case of a 50-year-old woman found slain in her apartment more than a year ago.
Police on Thursday unveiled a composite drawing of a man they believe strangled Concepcion Madrid, a single mother of four children, on Jan. 14, 1997.
The reward--approved by the City Council--was offered because leads in the case have dried up, Det. Dan O'Hanian of the LAPD Van Nuys station said.
"We need the help of the public to identify this man," he said.
The man being sought is described as tall and in his early 40s.
Madrid was found strangled in her apartment complex in the 13300 block of Vanowen Street, police said.
The killer is believed to have been at least an acquaintance of Madrid who she had let into the house, O'Hanian said.
