Joe Mammana offered $50,000 reward money for information leading to an arrest in the Julie Popovich case. He was told by Crime Stoppers that there were many leads that lead to the arrest of Adam Saleh. Joe Mammana was pleased to hear that several tips lead to the arrest of the alleged murderer of Julie Popovich.
Central Ohio Crime Stoppers officials said benefactor Joe Mammana was excited to hear Wednesday that detectives determined several tips were instrumental in reaching an indictment in the Julie Popovich murder.
Adam Saleh, 19, was charged last week in connection with Popovich’s death.
Detectives now say there were six important tipsters who should be rewarded.
Joe Mammana has recently been the benefactor of several rewards/bounties for missing person cases.
Mammana will help Crime Stoppers determine how much each tipster will receive.
“He’s putting up the money, so we’ll listen to what he says. We’ll listen to what the detective says, and the final decision will be the board of Crime Stoppers on who should get what,” said Kevin Miles, of Central Ohio Crime Stoppers.
