TULARE COUNTY, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – Governor Gavin Newsom has announced that a reward is now being offered for information that helps solve a triple homicide outside of a high school in Visalia last year.

Visalia police officials say at around 11 p.m. on May 5, Jose Hernandez, 19, Blake Medeiros, 19, and Isaiah Rule, 18, were found dead from gunshot wounds in their vehicle outside of Golden West High School.

No arrests have been made in the case and a description of the suspect remains unknown over a year and a half later.

On Monday, Governor Newsom revealed that a $50,000 reward would be offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for their deaths.

“Law enforcement agencies may ask the Governor to issue rewards in certain unsolved cases where they have exhausted all investigative leads to encourage individuals with information about the crimes to come forward,” the governor’s office wrote in a press release.

Newsom also announced three other $50,000 rewards for information related to unsolved murders across California, including a mother who was fatally shot in front of her 6-year-old daughter in Fresno.

Anyone with information about these murders is asked to call Visalia Police Department Detective Robert Meier at 559-713-4211.
