His family initially offered up a reward of $ 50,000, which was increased by the same amount to $ 100,000 when Orange County Supervisor Don Wagner approved this addition with the county’s Board of Supervisors.
According to KTLA, a local broadcaster, Supervisor Katrina Foley matched this once more with her own money, bringing the reward total to $ 150,000.
In a statement, Ms Foley said: “It is my hope this adds 150,000 reasons to encourage the public to send in any tips and information they might have, directly leading to the arrests of the individuals involved in Aiden’s death.”
Joanna Cloonan, the child’s mother, was driving him to kindergarten on the morning he was killed.
She recalls that the vehicle was possibly a white station wagon, which cut her off at the 55 Freeway’s carpool lane.
According to members of the family, in response to this Ms Cloonan put her middle finger up at the driver in a moment of fury.
“I want to find them and I want there to be justice to be served for my son.”
Near where the six-year-old was shot, mourners have built a memorial with cards, balloons, toys and candles.
