Charmaine Lawson, Josiah's mother, said "There is a reward of $10,000. If anyone knows anything that would lead to an arrest ... and conviction for my son's murder, I am pleading that you come forward."

"You guys have to do the right thing. Please. Come forward," Lawson said. The family is accepting donations, which "will go towards justice for DJ." 

Arcata Police Chief Tom Chapman encouraged anyone with information to call Arcata Police Department at 707-822-2428.
