PHOENIX — Monday marked eight years since a man was murdered at a Phoenix apartment complex and authorities are increasing the reward to help solve the cold case.

The new reward amount is $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and/or indictment of two suspects in the murder of 59-year-old Jeffrey Bellemare in 2013.

Bellemare was working as a security guard at Graybriar Apartments near Indian School Road and 51st Avenue when he was shot and killed around 1:30 a.m., the Phoenix Police Department said.

A man and a woman were observed running from the scene and getting into an older model sedan with a vinyl top that had possible front-end damage from a prior incident.

One suspect is described as a white or light-skinned Hispanic man, while the other was described as a white or light-skinned Hispanic woman.

Those with information are asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-W-I-T-N-E-S-S (948-6377) or 480-T-E-S-T-I-G-O for Spanish. An anonymous tip can also be submitted on the Silent Witness website.

People can remain completely anonymous and earn the cash reward, authorities said.

We want to hear from you.
