TYRONE, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the death of a Tyrone man.

The OSBI is offering the reward in an effort to help solve the June 2013 case in which 70-year-old James Vitkowski was killed.

Vitkowski was found June 30 unconscious on the shop floor of his business - Jim’s Salvage. He was taken to a Wichita, Kansas, hospital where he died July 8 from blunt force trauma.

Tyrone is a town of about 760 in Texas County - about 30 miles northeast of Guymon in the Oklahoma Panhandle.
