On Wednesday, attorneys representing Morin’s family increased the reward to $20,000.

It previously stood at $10,000 between Metro Crime Stoppers and the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.

“The loss of Rachel Morin has left a profound void in the lives of her family and friends. We believe that someone out there holds the key to solving this case. We are doubling the reward to $20,000 in the hope that it will encourage anyone with information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, to come forward and help us bring closure to this heart-wrenching tragedy,” the law firm of Rice, Murtha, Psoras said in a statement.

Little is known of what happened Saturday, August 5, when the mother of five went for a walk.

She never returned home, prompting her boyfriend to report her missing.

The next day, Morin’s body was found. DNA located at the crime scene linked to a March home invasion suspect in Los Angeles.

Yet, police aren’t exactly sure who the suspect is. So far, all they have is this video of him leaving a home.

It’s unclear what connection, if any, the suspect has in Maryland, but investigators think he’s committed multiple crimes in other states.
