The California Governor’s office is offering a $25,000 reward for information about the murder of a homeless man in Isla Vista.
Gregory Ghan, 53, was found unconscious and severely beaten in front of a neighborhood clinic on May 31, 2008. He died after 10 days on life support in a local hospital.
Santa Barbara County Sheriff Drew Sugars said a police investigation of the killing failed to turn up any strong leads or potential suspects.
“We have come to a point where we’ve really checked all avenues. We believe there’s more information out there,” Sugars said. “We’re hopeful that the money being offered might encourage somebody to come forward.”
After interviewing 94 potential witnesses and others possibly related the case, County Sheriff Bill Brown asked the Governor’s office to offer a reward.
