The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office on Thursday announced that $45,000 in reward money was being offered to help close nine unsolved homicides dating to June 2015.

A $5,000 reward will be given for information leading to an arrest and conviction in each of the fatal shootings. 

"We know there are witnesses, or people who have information about these homicides, and we hope this reward money encourages them to come forward and help apprehend those who are responsible for these killings," Prosecutor Robert Bernardi said in a statement.

"We are also fully aware of the mindset of some people on the street that the police should not be assisted with solving crimes. I'm asking the public to have the courage to reject that line of thinking. There is no honor in allowing a murderer to go unpunished," he said.

The homicides in which the reward money is being offered are:

Nasim Byrd, 22, killed on Placid Lane in Willingboro on Jan. 15.
Authorities said a dark-colored SUV was reported to have been driven away at high speed.

Tariq Mughal, 32, killed on the first block of Genesee Lane in Willingboro on Dec. 27, 2016.

Ibn Perry, 16, slain Dec. 12 on the front porch of his home on Plumtree Lane in Willingboro. A van pulled up, and two people got out and began firing at Perry and three others who were on the porch, authorities said. Perry was struck in the head and killed, and another person was struck in an ankle and wounded.

Kevin M. Randolph, 33, killed Dec. 9 in the area of the first block of Pine Street in Beverly. Authorities said Randolph had been arguing with another man when he was shot several times and collapsed.
