Reward offered in Winter Haven cold case

Posted: Updated:

Winter Haven detectives went back to the neighborhood where a woman was murdered three years ago hoping to find her killer.

They handed out hundreds of fliers and put up dozens of signs to try to re-ignite the case of Cherie Kirkendall.

Kirkendall was sitting on a couch in her apartment when someone outside fired a gun. The bullet shattered a window of the apartment, and hit and killed Kirkendall.

"Typically, when we go out and participate in initiatives like this, it does generally generate additional tips," Sgt. Mitch Meadows told FOX 13 on Thursday. "Now, whether they provide what we're actually looking for, we'll see."

Last year, police canvassed the area near where Kirkendall lived as well, the 700 block of Avenue O Southwest. They got leads, but none panned out.

It may be a particularly difficult case. Neighbors say the area is rough, so people may not be willing to deal with police. It is also a transient area. People living there now may not have been there when Kirkendall was killed.

Anyone who has information is be urged to call 1 (800) 226-TIPS. There is a $3,000 reward.
