With the first anniversary of his murder looming, the family of Jam Master
Jay have announce they intend to hire a private firm to further investigate the events that led to his fatal shooting. Jam Master Jay's brother, Marvin Thompson explains: "Well, the police department is doing the best they can do. I figure a little bit more help won't hurt. I want to be able to close this case this year hopefully. We're still in communication with the police department, they're still following different leads, but sometimes they feel like a cat chasing their own tail, running around in circles."
In addition a $500,000 reward is being offered to anyone with information leading to the arrest of his murderer. Thompson: "Maybe they will come out and discuss something now. Whoever knows something, just come forth."
