Cary, NC, June 1997 -- It's been eight months since the murder of fictional daytime soap opera star Karla Masefield was revealed in SouthPeak Interactive's on-line mystery The Light Files: Death in Broad Daylight. And it's been three months since additional clues were posted that could lead amateur sleuths to a lucrative $5,000 prize for solving the mystery.

Nearly nine thousand visitors to www.lightfiles.com have reviewed police interviews, photos of evidence and crime scenes, witness statements, newspaper clippings, suspect and witness profiles, soap opera scripts and other evidence. But as of today, the "reward" money remains unclaimed.

"It pains me to see this money sitting here without anyone stepping forward to take it," proclaimed Armistead Sapp, president of SouthPeak Interactive. "I can't get any work done with all these hundred dollar bills strewn across my desk."

More than 40 clues point to the perpetrator of a fictional homicide, but entries must be submitted before the October 31, 1997 deadline for the contest.
