PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A murder victim’s widow joined police and public officials today in asking for the public’s help in finding out who killed her husband near a busy Philadelphia intersection last month.

Just a block from North Broad Street, at Girard and Watts, police say someone shot and killed 50-year-old Kevin Drinks on the evening of December 10th, in front of the furniture store where he worked.

“My husband has three children, five grandchildren; he’s just a loving, God-fearing man, and we can’t figure out who would want to kill him,” said Keyna Drinks (at far left in photo).  The Citizens Crime Commission today announced a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of her husband’s killer.

“We want justice for Kevin. Just come forth! We just need to know what happened. We want justice for anyone who was killed in this city,” she said, adding, “I believe someone is being buried today.”

Pennsylvania state representative Curtis Thomas joined police officials in asking for more community involvement in reporting and stopping crime.

Then, a vigil was held on the spot Drinks died, and songs from those who loved him.
