Franklin is creating a $25,000 reward fund for tips that help police solve crimes.

City Council members approved the reward fund at their meeting Monday.

The city can offer and pay rewards ranging from $100 to $25,000 for tips that lead to the arrest and conviction for crimes.

The fund is named in honor of 10-year-old Blake Dickus.

Blake and his step-mother, Chynna Dickus, were found stabbed multiple times inside their home back in 2006. Chynna died from multiple stab wounds but Blake was killed by a blow to the head. Their murders have remained unsolved.
