CrimeStoppers Offers $100K Reward In Cold Case

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - The Michigan State Police is taking another look at a 5-year-old cold case. With the help of the Mid-Michigan CrimeStoppers program combined with a record setting reward, they're hoping to find an answer.


Officials are hoping the $100,000 reward will prompt someone to come forward in the unsolved murder of Krista Robin Lueth, 34.

The Michigan State University student went missing nearly 5-years-ago this November and investigators believe someone holds the key to solving her murder.


"I feel there is someone out there that has info about Krista Lueth's homicide, I really do. And the other detectives that I work with do too. This will hopefully push them over the top to provide info necessary," said Sgt. Tom DeClercq, MSP Special Investigations.

Declercq is banking on a six-figure reward to motivate someone to come forward with a tip needed to crack this case.

Lueth was last seen leaving her home in the 1100 block of Eureka Street in Lansing November 11th around 5:30p.m. She was studying horticulture at Michigan State, but she never made it to her evening class at Hunter Park Greenhouse, practically a half mile from her home.

Her father reported her missing the next day.

"She was excited about her moving on with her life, finishing her studies at MSU, moving to New York for her Master's degree. Was not depressed. She had plans. She had appointments. No indications she had any problems," said Declercq.

Days turned into months. Neither credit cards nor her phone were being used and she hadn't reached out to her family. At that time, it became a homicide investigation.

Her case has been cold for five years now and CrimeStoppers has joined in the effort to find who killed this focused, driven college student and bring her killer to justice.
