Reward offered for information about stabbing in Grand Prairie

Private citizens have offered a $10,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and indictment of whoever killed a Dallas County probation officer last month in Grand Prairie.

Raymond St. John Hernandez, 45, was stabbed to death on Aug. 8 at his home in the 2600 block of Channing Drive, police said. Investigators have said they believe the house was set ablaze to hide the stabbing.

Hernandez had been a Dallas County Juvenile Probation Officer since 1996, according to reports.

The reward was offered by private citizens who wanted to be anonymous, said Detective John Brimmer, police spokesman.

Police hope that the reward will lead to a breakthrough in the case.

"We've had a couple of leads, but they haven't panned out," Brimmer said. "We even had a composite drawing which led us to an individual, but it was a dead end."

Anyone with information can call a special tip hotline, 972-237-8877, or Crime Stoppers, 972-988-TIPS (8477).
