With much still unknown almost a month after the death of Tulane graduate Thomas Rolfes, billboards advertising the $30,000 being offered have sprung up in the area of South Claiborne Avenue.

In a report from WWL-TV, Rolfes' former roommate said the family and his fiancee haven't given up hope to find out what happened.

"With this $30,000 reward, we're hoping to get the word out that might entice someone to open up if they saw anything and possibly get us some new leads," Monroe said to WWL-TV.

The 25-year-old was in New Orleans to plan his wedding when his body was discovered near Amelia Street and South Claiborne Avenue. Police have said the shooting could have been involved in a robbery, as Rolfes' wallet was missing.

Friends who were with Rolfes the night he was killed said they last track of him, and surveillance video showed him purchasing two bottles of water at a Claiborne Avenue gas station before he was killed.

After the initial Crimstoppers reward was posted at $5,000 for information, friends and family donated to boost it to where it now sits.
