Reward offers
increase in
Rehor-Beery murder

PALMER -- 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 MEA.
