Despite a reward offer of nearly $30,000, no one has been charged in last April's fatal shooting of 12-year-old Aliza Spencer in her Binghamton neighborhood.
Five months after the killing of the sixth grade East Middle School student, purple ribbons remain in her memory on poles and fences near her Bigelow Street home.
City police have said Aliza was shot in the chest while walking with her father and brother around 10 p.m. April 21. She died a short time later at Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City.
Detective Captain Cory Minor on Wednesday afternoon said he was unable to release additional information in connection with the killing. He said investigators continue to work on the case every day.
A $10,000 reward for information about the shooting was posted the day after Aliza died. The reward offer since then has grown to $29,500.
Minor said people with information about the shooting may contact the Binghamton police detective bureau at (607) 772-7080.
