Business owner adds to reward in the Dee Rios murder

SPENCER — A local businessman is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to an arrest in the murder of Latin Mix convenience store clerk Deyanira “Dee” Rios.
Rios was killed Nov. 12, 2010, during a store robbery.
Carrol J.W. Fisher’s donation brings the total cash reward in the investigation to $8,000, Spencer Police Chief Michael James said. The additional reward comes nearly a month after the Spencer town board offered $2,500 and Bradshaw’s Bail Bonding added $500.
“I applaud Dr. Fisher for his generosity and efforts in bringing the perpetrator to justice. It is quite refreshing to know there are kind people in our society that strive to do good deeds for his fellow man,” James said in a statement.
Rios was shot to death during an armed robbery just after hitting the panic button at the store at 429 N. Salisbury Ave. The gunman left the store with $11. Her murder remains unsolved.
Rios wasn’t originally supposed to be working the morning she was shot but had taken another clerk’s shift so she could earn extra money.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Spencer Police Investigator N.W. Pacilio at 704-633-3574 or 704-633-2231.
