Reward Growing to Capture Wenatchee Teen's Killer

WENATCHEE, Wash. - The reward for information to help catch the killer of a 17-year-old Wenatchee high school student is now over 50-thousand dollars. Detectives are hoping this money motivates anyone with information on Mackenzie Cowell's death to come forward.

 Over 750 interviews, 430 leads and 3 months later and detectives say they still don't know what happened to 17-year-old Mackenzie Cowell. Tonight, they're hoping there are still people out there who might know something about her tragic death.

"It's been a tough case," said Sgt. John Kruse of the Cowell Homicide Task Force. "All of us wish we could have solved it by now, not only for the community but for Mackenzie's family."

Cowell was last seen February 9, 2010 at her beauty school class in Wenatchee. Cowell's body was found four days later along the Columbia River at Crescent Bar. She had been hit on the head strangled and stabbed in the neck.

 The Cowell Homicide Task Force continues to piece together the case. They say, they have searched the entire Crescent Bar area and continue to gather information every day.

 So far, they've uncovered no person of interest or identified an official suspect. They hope the newly offered reward will provide both answers and peace to the family.

"It's so tough on them, losing a child. I can't even imagine it. They seem to be holding up the best they can, but they like all of us want the case to be solved."

 If you have any information authorities ask you to call crimestoppers at 888-4280 or Rivercom Tip Line at 663-9911.
