WESTWOOD, Kan. — A substantial reward is being offered for tips that lead to the arrest of a murderer who killed a grocery store produce manager a decade ago.

Those who remember the murder of David “Ray” Ninemire will recall the shock the community felt.

Apple marketNinemire was 68-years old when someone dressed in an Abraham Lincoln mask walked into the Apple Market at 47th and Mission Rd. at about 6 a.m. on August 15, 2003, and demanded money from the cashier.

When Ninemire stepped in to help the cashier, he was shot and killed. It was the City of Westwood’s first and only homicide.

In the past ten years investigators have followed up on nearly 200 leads. They’ve examined old names and some new ones and hope this new effort and reward money will entice people to talk. The reward is $30,000. If you know anything about who killed Ninemire, a father and grandfather, investigators ask you to call 816-474-TIPS.
