MIAMI TOWNSHIP, CLERMONT COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

The Miami Township Police Department is still investigating the death of a man who was found shot in his home back in February. Now they are offering an award.

Paul Leiter, 65, was shot the evening of Feb. 11. Somebody shot into his home through a window from outside the house at 419 Pinebluff Drive.  

Neighbors say they saw a suspicious man walking in the neighborhood shortly before the shooting. 

The man was described as a white male, about 60 years old, with short white hair, and dark-rimmed eyeglasses. A white van was also seen nearby at about the same time.

Witnesses say the van was either a Chevrolet Astro or a Plymouth van.

"They said it was a boxy looking vehicle. It was white and had windows on the sides," said Miami Township Police Chief R. Steven Bailey.

Police released a sketch on February 15 of a man whose identity they were seeking, but have not received any calls about the man's identity.

Miami Township Police are considering several persons of interest to the case. A search warrant was executed on a residence near Bethel, Ohio on Feb. 15. Forensic evidence was collected at that location. No one there was arrested.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $2500.00 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect or information leading to a successful closure of this case. 

Anyone with information about the white van or the identity of the man, or who may have seen him in the neighborhood on the night of Monday, Feb. 11 or before that date should contact the Miami Township Police at 248-3721 Monday-Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., or the Clermont County Communications Center at 732-2231, available 24 hours a day, or Crime Stoppers at 888-352-3040.
