After nearly 2 months with few leads on the homicide of Christopher Skinner, his family and police announced Tuesday a 75,000 reward for information about the case.

The Toronto Police Department is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction, while Skinner's family pitched in an additional $25,000.

The announcement was made at a press event Tuesday morning at the Toronto intersection where Skinner, a gay man, was killed during an altercation Sunday, October 18 after his assaulters ran him over with a black-colored SUV.

“We are asking the public to come forward with information needed to solve this case,” said Peter Lehmkhuhl, the victim's godfather.

Police believe as many as 4 men attacked Skinner as he walked home alone along Adelaide Street. They knocked him to the ground, then returned to the vehicle and the driver ran him over. He was rushed to the hospital, but died while in surgery. Eyewitnesses say the driver was wearing a tight black-colored tank top and a short “military style” haircut.

Investigators believe Skinner was attempting to hail a cab when the SUV rolled by.

“We believe Mr. Skinner was still attempting to hail a cab and he may have intentionally or unintentionally struck the suspect vehicle with his hand or a part of his body,” Detective Stacy Gallant said in October. “Maybe he walked out into the middle of the roadway and caused this [SUV] to slow down, and they took offense to that.”

But friends have expressed concerns that he might have been attacked because of his sexual orientation. “I find that Toronto police very rarely jump to the conclusion that homophobia exists,” long-time friend Craig Lund told gay weekly

Over 1,000 people showed up to remember Skinner at an October candlelight vigil, many waving rainbow flags.

The 27-year-old student was engaged to be married next summer to his boyfriend, Ryan Cooke.
