Unocal offers $25,000 reward in Crockett murder investigation

The brutal murder of 21 year old Priscilla Lewis at a Crockett pizza restaurant on September 24 has prompted the creation of a reward fund to aid in the investigation. In cooperation with the Contra Costa County Sheriff and the District Attorney's office, Unocal is adding $25,000 to that fund in the hope that a larger reward will help develop new leads in the case.

"We are saddened at this senseless muder of an innocent young woman. It has devastated a family and shaken this entire community," said Jeff Wilkes, Refinery General Manager.

"We share the frustration of Priscilla's family and friends and hope that this reward will help the Sheriff's investigation resolve this horrible tragedy and bring the perpetrator to justice," Wilkes added.

Sheriff's Department investigators have asked anyone with information about the case to call (510) 313-2651.
