-- Working in cooperation with the Alaska State Troopers, Matanuska Electric
Association has formed a reward fund for information leading to the arrest
of Paul Stavenjord, the person indicted for the murders
of Debbie Rehor and her husband, Rick Beery.
"We have donated $5,000 to
the reward fund and encourage other organizations and individuals to help
us assist the Troopers in bringing the perpetrator of these crimes to justice,"
said MEA General Manager Wayne Carmony. Donations to the Rehor-Beery Reward
Fund (account 8484-99) may be made at any branch of the Mat Valley Federal
Credit Union or any MEA office.
State Troopers say persons spotting
Stavenjord should not approach him, as he is considered armed and dangerous.
Instead, they should immediately notify the Alaska State Troopers at 745-2131
or any law enforcement agency.
Mat-Su Crime Stoppers is offering
a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and indictment of
the person or persons responsible for the crime. MEA has offered to reimburse
Crime Stoppers for its reward. The International Brotherhood of Electrical
Workers, Local 1547, also has established a reward fund. From all sources,
the rewards amount to more than $12,000.
Carmony said the reward money MEA
collects will be awarded in consultation with the Alaska State Troopers
and the families of Rehor and Beery.
"Debbie (Rehor) was a gem,"
Carmony said. "Her co-workers miss her very much and hope the rewards
encourage someone to come forward with information that helps the Troopers."
Rehor was a 13-year employee of
