The FBI and Galveston County Sheriff's Office announced today a $20,000 Reward in the Baby Grace Case.
"We believe this $20,000 will provide additional incentive for someone to come forward, FBI agent John Kinard said at a news conference today at the Galveston Sheriff's Department
Kinard said the offer was unique because most rewards are for information leading to the arrest and conviction of someone who committed a crime.
The unusual reward was being offered because of "the unique nature of the victim," Kinard said.
"We have never had a case where we have had an unidentified body for this period of time," said Sheriff's Sgt. Mike Barry, lead investigator.

SAN FRANCISCO -- An additional $50,000 has been added to the reward for finding the hit-and-run driver responsible for the March 2006 death of 27-year-old Ashlyn Dyer in San Francisco, the FBI announced Wednesday.
According to the FBI, Dyer was struck at around 6:50 a.m. on March 2, 2006 as she jogged on Washington Boulevard near Kobbe Avenue in the San Francisco's Presidio. The force of impact threw Dyer over a fence where she likely hit her head on a concrete culvert, the FBI reported.
Dyer never regained consciousness and died in the hospital as a result of her injuries ten days later, according to the FBI.
The additional reward money added by the FBI brings the total reward to $100,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest, and prosecution of the driver who struck and killed Dyer. The FBI reward adds to rewards offered last year by the city of San Francisco, the Presidio Trust and the Ashlyn Dyer Foundation.
