Increased Reward In Las Cruces Triple Homicide

Las Cruces – Las Cruces Crime Stoppers is hoping that an additional $5,000 in reward money will spark new clues in the April 2010 triple homicide that occurred on Mesilla Hills Drive.

On Tuesday, March 1, the estate of Peter Weith gave Las Cruces Crime Stoppers $5,000 as reward money to help solve the crime. In December the Gilles and Helga Delisle estate provided $8,000 in reward money.

The new total reward for information that leads to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the murders, including the initial $2,000 provided by Crime Stoppers, now stands at $15,000.

On the morning of Thursday, April 15, 2010, the bodies of Peter J. Weith, and Gilles L. and Helga Harries Delisle, were discovered inside a home at 2617 Mesilla Hills Dr. Investigators learned that the three victims had been shot to death.

The Dona Ana County Sheriff's Department continues to seek information on the triple homicide and asks for anyone with information - no matter how relevant or insignificant that information is believed to be - to call Crime Stoppers. The identities of those who provide information can be kept anonymous.

If you have any information on who may have committed this crime you are asked to call Las Cruces Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or send a tip via text message to LCTIPS (528477).

The Crime Stoppers number and text messaging services are operational 24 hours a day and you do not have to give your name to collect a reward.
