$13k reward offered for information about elderly Delano man's death; community raised $8k

DELANO, Calif. - The reward for information leading to an arrest in a Delano murder case is rising, thanks to donations from the community.

The Delano Chamber of Commerce had already put up $5,000 to help catch the person responsible for the death of 88-year-old Johnny Espinoza.

Since then, $8,000 has come in from community members.

Espinoza's body was found last month in the truck of his car in a canal just east of Delano and so far no arrests have been made.
