Friday marks the one-year anniversary of the unsolved killing of Bolman “Bee Love” Slater, whose body was found in a burned vehicle in Clewiston.

The Hendry County Sheriff’s Office and the FBI on Friday announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect or suspects in the case.

Love’s best friend said shortly after the killing that she believed Love was targeted because she is transgender. At the time, the sheriff’s office said they couldn’t label it as such until they confirmed the motive.

Investigators developed a person of interest, Jamson Richemond, 29, of Belle Glade, who has not been charged in the case.

The FBI said Friday they have received “some promising leads” in the case.
