Reward Increased In Hereford House Blaze

The picture at the top, released this week, seems to show a man who is larger or at least stockier-built than the man fairly clearly pictured in photos released in February. Both appear to be wearing very similar baseball caps.


Kansas City, MO – Authorities have doubled the reward for information leading to the conviction of the person or persons responsible for the million-dollar fire at the Hereford House restaurant downtown last year.

They're now offering $10,000 - and have posted a previously unreleased security video photo that shows what appears to be a second suspect in the dimly lit restaurant shortly before the 1 AM fire.

The photo released today showed a man who appeared to be larger or at least heavier-set than the man in the security photo released in February.

The fire took place one year ago today. The restaurant has not reopened.
