Reward Doubled To $100,000 To Solve James Gilliland's Murder
EL CERRITO, CA — For more than eight months, someone has gotten away with murder. A cold-blooded murder in front of an El Cerrito home. Now, friends and family of James Gilliland Jr., 62, are stepping up efforts to bring his killers to justice. A $100,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the homicide.
The lawyer was fatally shot in the 2600 block of Mira Vista Drive around 8:45 p.m. on Oct 27, 2016, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
A $50,000 reward was announced in November, and that amount has since been doubled, according to a website set up at www.justice4jim.com.
Gilliland sang in a church choir and was a fan of the San Francisco Giants as well as the Golden State Warriors, according to a statement issued by his family today.
"He was a big-hearted and warm person, generous with his time and skills to anyone who might benefit," the statement read. "It is hard for us to imagine who would want to kill such a kind and gentle soul."
