May 7, 2008

If you have been here before, you may notice that I have changed the blog some. I decided to use a different, more user friendly host for the blog. I was able to transfer both the posts that I had previously made as well as the comments left to this point. Sorry if this has added any confusion, I am new to all of this!

Crime Stoppers now has the reward money and should be in the process of posting and then advertising the reward. I will let everyone know more about what this entails as we know more. I have attached a link to view the reward poster on the 'Sites of Interest' tab on the website.

Well, it looks like I have this up and running. You will have to excuse me if you find errors on the website or here in the blog, this is my first time setting this all up. Any and all comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

The only news to report now is that we have sent the reward money to Crime Stoppers and are hoping to have the reward in place soon. This should help us in our efforts to get a little more media attention, and spread the word that Jim was an amazing person who has TONS of family and friends out there who want his murderer found and convicted. We are hoping that a monetary incentive will help bring someone forward who may know some more information about Jim's murder.

Again, thank you to all for your love and support during this time, the outpouring has been amazing and really is a testament to Jim and the mark he left in the world.

Jim Bowerman was murdered in his apartment in North Miami, Florida on April 11, 2008. I am Jim's older sister, Julie, and have helped to set up a website ( and this blog to bring awareness to the case and to help find the person who killed Jim. Please feel free to contact us with anything, however if you have information pertaining to the case, please call Crime Stoppers at: (305) 471-TIPS (8477) or 1-866-471-8477 or submit a tip online at

I will try to use this blog as a way to communicate as much information as we can to friends and family. Given that this is an open investigation, I will not be able to share everything, but will do my best to keep people as up to date as possible.
