''ST. PAUL, Minn. — Thirty-five years after the murder of a St. Paul mother, a cash reward is being offered to solve this cold case once and for all.

Cheryl Prokop was strangled in the early morning hours of Dec. 2, 1988, inside her residence in the Vista Village Townhomes, near the St. Paul Downtown Airport. Her 4-year-old daughter found her body hours later.

On Friday, the St. Paul Police Department and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension announced an anonymous donor has put up $10,000 in hopes of catching her killer.

"We as a department never forget victims and their families who are left behind seeking answers," said SPPD Chief Axel Henry. "We will continue to seek those answers and are committed to providing closure for families and bringing every offender to justice."

The donor will give the cash reward to whoever provides a tip that leads to an arrest and conviction.

Anyone with information about her murder can submit it anonymously by calling the BCA at 1-877-996-6222, or by sending an email to bca.tips@state.mn.us.''

Homicide investigators regularly say that guilt, changing relationships and time are often factors that can lead to cracking a cold case.

There's another thing that can convince someone who knows something to share information: Cold, hard cash.

An anonymous donor has stepped up to offer a $10,000 reward in hopes of solving the 1988 murder of Cheryl Prokop. Police say someone entered Prokop's residence at the Vista Village Townhomes in St. Paul 35 years ago on Dec. 2 and strangled her. The victim's 4-year-old daughter discovered her lifeless body and went to the caretaker's office to get help.

“We’ve waited for 35 years to understand why Cheryl was killed and who did it," her father, Dick Prokop, said. "Nothing can bring her back, but maybe this reward will help lead to some answers. If you know what happened, please report what you know.”

At 4 years old, Katelin Prokop witnessed her mom snatched from her bed before she was killed. Now, she hopes a $10,000 reward will make people talk.
