On Sept. 29, 2018, David Swan, 88, and Mina Swan, 80, were found fatally shot inside their Clearwater, Florida, a home that they shared in a middle-to the upper-class neighborhood.
Investigators in Clearwater, believe the couple was targeted and said there weren’t any signs of forced entry into the home. But despite the numerous interviews and articles of evidence collected, police still don’t have whatever clue they need to solve the case.
In March of 2019, relatives of the victims joined the Clearwater Police Department in a news conference to announce the reward in the case had doubled from $25,000 to $50,000.
In the news conference, police and the family also pleaded for the public to come forward with information in the case.
“We are looking very much for answers. We know that there are answers out there. We know that. We know someone out there knows something and I hope they’ll share that information. It’s extremely important to us,” said Noel Devine in the news conference. Devine is the daughter of Mina Swan.
“We wanted the reward out there as a reminder that mom was loved and very much missed. And now, the one thing that can help… the one thing that could help is finding the answers to what happened,” Devine continued.
Police in 2018 said they believed the murders were not committed at random and “that the offender came to kill,” Chief Daniel Slaughter noted at the time. He called it “very targeted” and well-planned.
A $53,000 reward is being offered for any information that would lead to an arrest and conviction in the case, with $50,000 coming from families and another $3,000 from Crime Stoppers of Pinellas County.
