SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. – The family of a man found dead in his apartment back in February is offering a reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who may have killed their son.
Cory Fowler was found dead in his apartment on East Mansfield Avenue on February 18. He was found by his father, Clifford Fowler, who told deputies his front door was unlocked when he got there. Clifford said he was checking on Cory because he had not seen or heard from him since February 7. Fowler appeared to have died from gunshot wounds due to a large amount of blood that aligned with his wounds, according to court documents.
The family sent out a flyer Thursday offering a $10,000 reward for the conviction of their son’s murderer.
The flyer read in part, “He was not a pillar of society. He was not a politician or celebrity. He was simply a kind, extremely gentle man who was appalled by violence. He was a loving son, brother and father. He was a veteran. He was a college graduate. He gave up the life he loved in Portland, Oregon when he learned he was to be the father of a daughter who would be born in Coeur d’Alene. He moved back home to North Idaho. Got a good paying job in Spokane, an apartment in the Spokane Valley, and was building a life for himself – a life he wanted his daughter to be a large part of.”
The family said the reward will be split and divided equally if more than one tip leads to conviction. If you have any information you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.
