District Attorney Stollsteimer And U.S.Marshal Gartner Announce A $15,000 Reward For Information Regarding Murder Of A Child In Chester

Media, PA – Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer and U.S. Marshal

Eric Gartner today announced a reward of up to $15,000 for information leading to the arrest of the individual(s) responsible for the April 5 shooting death of seven-year-old Sinsir Parker. The reward is being jointly offered and administered by the Philadelphia Crime Commission of the Delaware Valley and the U.S. Marshal for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

At approximately 9:00 pm on Sunday, April 5, Sinsir Parker was killed in a shooting incident that occurred near the 2600 block of Swarts Street in Chester’s Highland Gardens neighborhood.

“Today’s announcement demonstrates the commitment of local law enforcement and the U.S. Marshals Service to solve this senseless crime”, said Stollsteimer. “This is a unique reward, it does not require the conviction of any person(s). What we need is information,” he continued. “The murder of this young man is a devastating loss to his family and friends, and also to the larger community. It is critical that we bring those responsible to justice.”

“Any loss of life from violence is a tragedy,” stated U.S. Marshal Gartner, “but when the violence strikes a young child, it is truly heartbreaking. We must join together to
solve this crime – and demonstrate our collective resolve in reducing violence in Chester and the surrounding communities.”

The District Attorney stated that the Criminal Investigation Division has committed $10,000 to the reward fund, while the U.S. Marshals’ office has committed $5,000.
The Citizens Crime Commission will administer the reward. Any person with information should contact the Citizens Crime Commission Tip line at 215-546-TIPS (8477) or the U.S. Marshals’ Tip line at 866-865-TIPS(8477). All callers will remain anonymous.

For press inquiries, please contact Margie McAboy, Public Information Officer, Delaware County District Attorney’s Office, 610-891-8598, or Robert Clark of the U.S. Marshals Service at 215-783-4548.
