Success Leads To Three More Reward Offers In Murder Cases


The Milwaukee Police Department had no leads in the murder of Kevin Bohannon on July 7, 2006. Kevin’s sister is an employee of this law firm and she asked Attorney Hupy if there was anything he could do to help. On Thursday, September 21st, Attorney Hupy and Kevin’s sister held a news conference with the Milwaukee Police Department announcing a $5,000.00 reward to be paid by the law firm of Hupy and Abraham Within forty-eight hours, the police received numerous tips and arrested three people in connection the murder. The Milwaukee Police Chief’s Office thanked Hupy and Abraham for taking the initiative that solved a crime that the police department could not solve after months of investigation.

 An article in the on-line addition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on September 25, 2006, also credits the example set by Hupy and Abraham in bringing about a quick arrest with prompting three other families to post $5,000.00 rewards.

“In the most recent rewards, families are asking for help in two homicides from this year and one from 2005. In each, anyone with information is asked to call Milwaukee police at (414) 935-7360.

The cases are:

Scott Schmidt, 42, who was shot to death in his apartment, in the 200 block of E. North Ave., just before midnight on May 25, 2005.

Carlos Rodriguez, 20, was riding in a van in the 1700 block of S. 25th St. at 9:15 p.m. on June 18, when suspects opened fire, police said. Rodriguez was hit in the back and died later at the hospital.

Calvin Davis, 24, was shot in the neck in a road-rage incident, in the Riverwest neighborhood at 1:15 p.m. July 2. After he was shot, he crashed his car into a van in the 200 block of E. Burleigh St. and died.”
