The prime suspect and an accomplice wanted in the murder of Los Angeles Police Officer Daniel Pratt are still at large despite the offer of $15,000 in reward money, Police Department officials said Tuesday. The reward, offered last week for information leading to the arrests of Kirkton Phenor Moore, 27, and Raylene Brooks, 17, was described as unique by Cmdr. William Booth, a police spokesman, in that there is no requirement that the arrests lead to a conviction.

Out of the hundreds of murders and other violent crimes in Los Angeles this year, state, county and local officials sponsored only 17 rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the criminals. One case that received a reward was the slaying of 14-year-old Angela Migliore in Lancaster, whose body was found strangled near a road in October. Within a month after the crime, state and local governments had offered rewards in the case totaling $60,000.
