NORTH SALEM, N.Y. (AP) - A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered for any information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the slaying of an 83-year-old wife of a millionaire McDonald’s franchisee at their New York hilltop estate.

Police say Lois Colley died of blunt force trauma. She was found dead Monday in her home in North Salem, in Westchester County.

A caretaker at the 300-acre estate found Colley’s body in the main house’s laundry room.

Investigators believe she was the victim of a homicide. A small fire extinguisher was missing from the home, though police wouldn’t say whether they believe it was used in Colley’s death.

Colley’s husband, Eugene, is known for his empire of roughly 100 McDonald’s restaurants. Police say he isn’t considered a suspect.

The public is asked to call the New York State Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-866-313-8477.
