Family and friends of 19-year-old Dustin McCowan are offering a reward to anyone who has information about the murder of Amanda Bach in Northwest Indiana.

McCowan was arrested and charged with the murder of Bach last September, but his family believes in his innocence and thinks a multi-state killer is responsible, according to the Northwest Indiana Times.

The NWI Times reports McCowan's father, a Crown Point police officer, contacted a private investigator from florida to see if there are any similarities between Bach's murder and that of another woman who was found dead in Tennesee.

McCowan's father tells the paper an anonymous donor offered to pay a $10,000 reward for anyone with information.

Bach dissapeared on Sept. 15 after reportedly spending time with McCowan at his home. Two days later, her body was found on a railroad about 300 yards from McCowan's home.
