The other revelers had fled the rented AirBnB before the police arrived.

Staff-Sgt. Steve Magistrale says a team of detectives is working on this investigation and is asking the public for help.

Police released a photo taken inside the AirBnB on the night of the party. It shows a hooded man and an unmasked man and woman taking photos.

“Investigators are looking to identify and speak to the people in this photo, especially the man and woman who are not wearing a mask,” Magistrale said.

Police say they identified the person who hired AirBnB for a birthday party the night of the murders.

“Investigators identified most of the people present at the party that night. Some have been informed and have provided valuable information, however, others simply refuse to cooperate, ”said Magistrale.

“For this reason, the Niagara Regional Police Service is now offering a cash reward of up to $ 100,000 to anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person (s) responsible for the murders of Juliana Pannunzio and Christine Crooks. ”

A reward of up to $ 50,000 was offered last month.

Anyone who was at the party or with information about the murders is asked to call Niagara Regional Police at 289-248-1058.
