The father of the victim in an ongoing homicide investigation has told investigators with the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office that he is willing to add to the reward for information to help identify a suspect.

This week, the victim’s father, Michael Partridge Sr., informed detectives that he would offer $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of a suspect. The father’s reward is in addition, and separate, from a $2,500 Secret Witness reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect or suspects in this investigation.
