In your morning news with Kaitlin Moore, a revitalization project is nearing it’s final stages. The half cent sales tax that was passed in 2004 and several different grants provided funds to refurbish and dredge the river.

Those improvements were finished in 2013.

The total cost of the project is about 14 million dollars.

It’s an almost 28-year-old case, the murders of a San Angelo man and woman have the attention of Texas rangers.

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is asking for the public’s help in solving the 1988 murders of Shane Stewart and Sally McNelly, of San Angelo. As part of a DPS public awareness program, one unsolved case is featured by the Texas Ranger Unsolved Crimes Investigation Team each month in an effort to generate new investigative leads and bring added attention to unresolved or “cold cases” across the state.

On July 4, 1988, Stewart and McNelly attended a fireworks display at Lake Nasworthy in San Angelo. The following morning, a lake ranger discovered Stewart’s abandoned 1980 Chevrolet Camaro parked near O.C. Fisher Reservoir, several miles from Lake Nasworthy. Stewart and McNelly subsequently were determined to be missing. 

In November of the same year, the bodies of Stewart and McNelly were discovered in close proximity to each other and near the Twin Buttes Reservoir. Autopsies revealed both victims died of gunshot wounds.

San Angelo Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for the deaths of Stewart and McNelly. To be eligible for the cash reward, the tip must be submitted by calling 1-800-756-3434 or visiting the San Angelo Crime Stoppers website at http://www.sanangelocrimestoppers.com/index.aspx.
