$10,000 reward offered in slaying of security officer Michael Valentin, employed by CIS

TAMPA - A private security company is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a suspect in the murder of one of its officers.

Michael Valentin, 38, was working at the Grande Oaks Apartments, when he was shot and killed Thanksgiving Eve.  Police do not know who pulled the trigger or why.

The reward was announced Tuesday by Critical Intervention Services.

Late last week, Tampa police released photos of a man seen riding a bicycle left at the scene.

Detectives are trying to identify the man and speak with him, according to Tampa PD spokesperson Andrea Davis.

The images were captured on a surveillance camera at the Grand Oaks Apartments.

Police also released photos of the bike, noting the unusual seat.

Anyone with information about the bicycle or its owner is asked to contact Tampa police at (813) 231-6130.
