Reward offered in Elgin woman's death
March 12, 2013 (ELGIN, Ill.) (WLS) -- The family of a northwest suburban woman found stabbed to death in her home is offering a $15,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.
Lisa Koziol-Ellis's husband, Dash Ellis, made a plea to his wife's killer during a news conference at the Elgin Police Department.
The woman was found dead in her home on garden crescent drive earlier this month.
Authorities say the victim's husband found her body and called police.
Tuesday he shared memories of his wife.
"She was the most amazing person I've ever met," Dash Ellis said. "She was kind and generous and loving. She was an artist, just a beautiful person.
Police are not saying whether Koziol-Ellis was targeted or whether she was surprised by a burglar at her home.
Her death was Elgin's first homicide of the year.
