Reward Now Offered For Clues In Joseph Bowser’s Death
In an effort to solve the murder of a young Battle Creek man, a reward is now being offered up.
Silent Observer announced on Tuesday that they are seeking any information they can about the shooting death of 22-year-old Joseph Bowser, who was killed March 23. His body was found on an early Saturday morning, outside of Battle Creek’s River Apartments, with a single gunshot wound to his head.
Authorities say the former Battle Creek Central basketball player had been visiting someone at the complex before he left. Shortly after the murder, The Battle Creek Enquirer said Bowser formerly played basketball for Battle Creek Central High School, and didn't have a real criminal record. Family members tell WOODTV that Bowser didn't have any enemies, and that he had been attending Western Michigan University to get an engineering degree.
Bowser’s family has now offered up a $1,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of those responsible for his death. If you have any information, you’re asked to contact police or Silent Observer.
