Sylvania Township police has announced a $2,000 privately-sponsored award for those who would help solve the murder of a man killed in June at his township residence.
Darryl Stipes, 60, was shot about 10:20 p.m. June 21 inside his home in the 3300 block of Waldmar Road and then died at Toledo Hospital hours later. The award was raised by his friends and family, township police said.
