HAGERSTOWN -- The Hagerstown Police Department is offering a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever was responsible for the Oct. 31 stabbing death of Billy Lee Black, according to a press release from Sgt. Paul Kifer.

A neighbor found Black's body in the backyard of a house at 210 James St. in Hagerstown's West End on Oct. 31 about 6:45 a.m. Black's Church Street home is just around the corner from where his body was found.

An autopsy was completed by the Office of the Medical Examiner in Baltimore, Kifer said Monday afternoon. Police had not received the official results yet, he said.

Investigators have been working on several leads, police said. Kifer on Monday afternoon said he could not elaborate on the investigation.
