The Community Currency Exchange Association of Illinois wants answers in the horrific death of Brian Choi.

Choi, who owned the currency exchange at 3442 W. Foster, was found last month stuffed in the trunk of his car. He apparently died from gunshot wounds he suffered in a robbery.

The CCEA is offering a $10,000 reward to anyone who can provide information about what happened that night.

“Brian was a good man, devoted husband and father and respected member of the Community Currency Exchange Association,” said John Iberl, president of CCEA said in a release.  “He will be greatly missed.  We are committed to assisting the Chicago Police and hope the $10,000 reward will help to find the persons responsible for this tragedy.”

The CCEA is urging anyone with information to contact the Chicago Police Department, Area 5 Detective Division at 312-746-8282.
