    CA - Maria Hsiao, 21, Palo Alto, 10 June 2001

    Palo Alto cold case: Video released in Maria Hsiao homicide investigation
    By Jason Green Daily News Staff Writer
    Posted: 02/06/2015 01:49:47 PM PST

    The Palo Alto Police Department is counting on the power of social media to provide the spark needed to solve a 13˝-year-old cold case homicide.

    On Friday, authorities released a video calling for anyone with information about the killing of Maria Ann Hsiao, 21, of San Leandro, to come forward. Hsiao was shot once in the head while standing outside the now-defunct Q-Café, located at 529 Alma St., just after midnight on June 10, 2001.

    [...]

    The police department posted the video to its website, www.cityofpaloalto.org/police, as well as on its various social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Perron said he is hopeful it will reach someone with the information needed to crack the case.

    [...]

    A $100,000 reward is still being offered for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of Maria Hsiao's killer, Perron said at the press conference.

    [...]

    "14 years later police search for witnesses in Palo Alto cold case"

    http://wn.ktvu.com/story/29302923/14...alto-cold-case

    For Hsiao's sister, the memory of that night remains. She wants justice.

    "It would help me to heal so that I can move forward," said Andrea Hsiao. Police hope that changes in people's lives over the past 14 years could bring about a change of heart from a witness or the person responsible.

    "Maybe they're in a different place in their life now and they're ready to come forward and tell the truth," said Sgt. Reifschneider.
