A nonprofit that rewards tipsters has denied an award in the long-unsolved killings of two civil rights activists, fueling criticism that the reopened investigation by Attorney General Charlie Crist's office did not solve it.
Central Florida CrimeLine said no one would get the 25-thousand dollar reward offered for information in the 1951 murders of Harry T. Moore and his wife, Harriette.
Last August, at the conclusion of a 20-month investigation, Crist announced that the killers had at last been identified. But a researcher who wrote a book about Moore, now says that Charlie Crist got it wrong.
