Crime Stop Jamaica is appealing to members of the public to help police investigators probing the murder of schoolgirl Denise Hume bring her attacker to justice.

Crime Stop is reminding Jamaicans that it has a Violence against Children Reward Fund, which pays rewards for tips leading to the arrest and charge of persons who physically harm children.

Fifteen-year-old Hume, who was a student at of Jose Marti High School in St Catherine, was shot dead at her house in Seaview Gardens in St Andrew.

The police say she was reportedly killed after she tried to end a relationship with her alleged attacker, who is a bus conductor.

The alleged attacker has been identified by the alias Lolly Man.

The police say Lolly Man frequents, Seaview Gardens, Portmore and Two Mile.

A manhunt has been launched for his capture.
