More than $7,000 was raised at a fundraiser at the Towne Grill and Pub in Joppatowne to support the family of Timothy Youngquist, who was killed Feb. 10 while making a Chinese food delivery in Edgewood.
The Sheriff’s Office has increased the reward to $10,000 using money seized by the Harford County Narcotics Task Force, according to Cristie Hopkins, director of media relations for the Sheriff’s Office.
“We are at that point in the investigation where we feel an increase in the reward can help generate information that will lead to arrests and convictions. Detectives are hopeful witnesses may be more amenable to providing information with the passage of time,” Hopkins said. “Multiple people were involved, so someone with information is out there. We really just want to bring closure to this case and bring justice to the family.”
Detectives from the Criminal Investigation Division have gone door to door, speaking to residents in the community where Youngquist was shot, she said. They also are working with other units, including crime suppression and patrol.
“They’re spending more time in the community, learning as much as we can to build rapport and hope there’s one piece of information out there that can tie this together,” Hopkins said.
Youngquist was found Feb. 10 on Monticello Court suffering from a gunshot wound. Deputies attempted life-saving efforts until medics from Joppa-Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company arrived.
Medics took Youngquist to University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air, where he was pronounced dead, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Police said three males were seen running from the crime scene.
Police searched the area using a police dog and a Baltimore County Police Department helicopter, but no suspects were apprehended, the Sheriff’s Office said.
