VANCOUVER - A $10,000 dollar reward is being offered in a very cold murder case in British Columbia.
The mother of an 11-year-old girl who was slain 36 years ago is hoping the reward will help revive interest in finding her daughter's killer.
The body of Kathryn Mary Herbert was found on the Matsqui First Nations reserve, in B.C.'s Lower Mainland, in the fall of 1975.
She'd vanished two months earlier while walking home from a friend's house.
Shari Greer says she's never lost hope the killer will be caught, and that after a recent prayer, she received the 10-thousand dollars from an anonymous donor.
Police say they're still looking for the male driver of a white, older model American vehicle that was parked where Herbert was last seen.
