Reward offered for information related to killing

The hunt continues for this man’s killer.

The Mayor’s Office is shelling out a $100,000 reward for the capture and prosecution of the man who shot 35-year-old Edgar Alfonso Ibarra dead in the 1200 block of Hampshire Street on Nov. 28, 2006.

The gunman shot him several times before fleeing in a waiting vehicle, police said. Family and friends have memorialized Alfonso, nicknamed “Blink,” on a website. A lifelong friend described a beloved man.

“When B gave me that nickname, Pretty Boy, he would laugh and smile,” he said. “That’s how he let everybody know! Today, some know me by that name.”

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to contact Inspector Daniel Cunningham or Inspector Mike Morley at the San Francisco Police Department’s homicide unit, (415) 553-1145. You can also call the SFPD anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444.
