A reward of $4,000 now is being offered for information in the killing this summer of a homeowner in Kansas City, North.

David Ruth, 47, was found shot to death June 30 inside his residence in the 4700 block of North Bennington Avenue. Firearms, Ruth’s pickup truck and other items were taken in the apparent residential burglary.
