Norwich — Police on Wednesday announced a $25,000 reward authorized by the governor’s office for information leading to an arrest in the unsolved Dec. 14, 2011, murder of 26-year-old Jaclyn Wirth of Norwich.

A billboard asking for the public’s help in obtaining information in the case was unveiled Wednesday morning at the corner of West Main and North High streets in Norwich. The billboard shows a photo of Wirth with her two young sons with the caption, “Who shot our Mommy.”

Wirth was shot multiple times inside her residence at 6D E. Baltic St. at the Mohegan Commons Apartments in Norwich. Investigators say they have determined shots were fired through the front door of the apartment. Wirth was struck multiple times and died from her injuries.

Police say they are certain there are individuals who have direct knowledge of what occurred at Wirth’s residence who have yet to come forward.

The Norwich Police Department and the New London County State’s Attorney’s Office ask that anyone with information related to the case call Norwich police detectives at (860) 892-2892 or (860) 886-5561 ext. 500.
