Search for suspect in Kaylyn Pryor murder continues, reward increased

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -- It’s been more than a month since aspiring model Kaylyn Pryor was shot and killed in Englewood and still no one is in custody. Saturday her family went back to the crime scene and surrounding neighborhood to pass out informational flyers.

The reward for information leading to an arrest in the case is now $26,000. Police say they are still investigating the shooting that took place outside Pryor’s grandparents’ home near 73rd and May Street in Chicago.

The 20-year-old was standing on the sidewalk when she was shot, she was taken to a local hospital where she died. Police say the shooting may be gang-related , but Pryor was not the intended target.

Her family passed out flyers in the area and said they’ve forgiven the person who did this, but still want answers.

“For the person who did this I don't hate you, I don’t have a hateful bone in my body,” said her mother Royce Pryor. “I have a question - I would like to know why just turn yourself in that's all I want, just turn yourself in.”

“Take it to the heart - if this was your daughter what would you do?” said a passionate Andrew Holmes, crisis responder for the City of Chicago. “If this was your neighbor's daughter? What would you do?”

Chicago Police officers offered a hand Saturday and flagged down drivers to hand them flyers.

“Young man if you are out there watching - we don't hate you, we love you, but at the end of the day we don't like what you did,” said 17th Ward Alderman David Moore.

Pryor was killed on the same day as 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee, police have two in custody in that case and still looking for a third person.
