    The reward for clues leading to the arrest of a murderer who gunned down a U.S. Postal worker as he made his rounds in Biscayne Gardens in December has been doubled again.

    Authorities are offering $100,000 for information that leads to an arrest in the slaying of 60-year-old Bruce Parton.

    On Monday, Dec. 6, the long time letter carrier was killed at the parking lot of the Monte Carlo Apartment Complex located at 496 Northwest 165th Street in North Miami-Dade.

    "I haven't been able to get my mind around that at all," said Nina Parton. "He was so friendly and always had a smile for everyone."

    According to detectives, the suspect shot Parton and then stole his mail truck. Witnesses say he drove it for a short distance before taking off on foot.

    The suspect is described as a black male, six feet tall, long dreadlocks, 25-30 years old, who was wearing all black with a red jacket.
