Westminster's only unresolved homicide has prompted the resurrection of the Carroll County Crime Solvers, which is offering a $2,500 reward for information about the attack in February on an employee of Best Pizza. The countywide program, a mechanism for gathering information to close a case, faded away about six years ago, said Lt. Terry L. Katz, commander of the Maryland State Police Westminster barracks.
