KANSAS CITY, Mo.— Four new billboards featuring the faces of homicide victims are going up around the city.

The billboards are being placed near heavily traveled intersections. It’s part of an effort by Kansas City Crime Stoppers to generate tips in the cases.

You can see the billboards in the following locations:

Jacob Skowronski – I-49 and Red Bridge Road
Montell Ross & Jayden Ugwuh- 71 Highway and 18th Street
Arthur L. Mourning Jr. – I-70 and Benton Boulevard
Donny Herron- I-49 and 140th Street

In April, Kansas City Police and Kansas City Metro Crime Commission announced a reward increase for tips that help solve Kansas City homicides from $5,000 to $10,000. Anyone with information is asked to call the TIPS hotline at 816-474- TIPS (8477).

FOX4 has partnered with Crime Stoppers to help generate tips on unsolved crime.  Each week we profile a cold case that airs at 9 p.m., Saturday night and we profile unsolved cases in our weekly Problem Solvers: Crime Files podcast - available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, Stitcher, and on our website under the podcast tab.
