Sarasota News Leader July 26, 2013 Page 64 "This crime is a senseless tragedy," said Knight in the release. "It began with a bad decision to commit a 'dine and dash' prank and led to a far worse choice that resulted in the death of a much loved man. We are committed to making sure that Rodriguez is held responsible for his decisions and actions." Knight also pointed out during the press conference that Crime Stoppers received about 40 tips in the case. Crime Stoppers initially offered a reward of $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of the persons involved in the restaurant owner's assault, Knight said. That reward rose eventually to $6,000. Tian's girlfriend, MaryLou Anderson, appeared with Knight at the press conference to express her appreciation to him and his officers. "They have been diligent and they have been tender to me at this most difficult time," she said. Simply put, Crime Stoppers relies upon the cooperation between the police the media and the community to provide a flow of information about crime and criminals.
