NJ pharmacist murder draws Purdue reward incentive

Last week's murder of a New Jersey pharmacy owner has a drugmaker, local law enforcement and federal investigators collaborating to find the killer. Trenton pharmacist Arjun Reddy Dyapa succumbed to a gunshot wound from an unknown assailant, and authorities are seeking tips with a recently boosted cash reward.

Purdue Pharma's RxPATROL, which links companies, drugstore owners and law enforcement agencies investigating pharmacy theft, hiked the existing $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest to $10,000.

Police say Dyapa's killing may be connected to a recent rash of armed pharmacy robberies in the region between Trenton and Hamilton. According to police, the armed robber entered the victim's pharmacy about 6 p.m. on Friday, demanding pills. Dyapa resisted and was shot. He died en route to the hospital.
