Crime Solvers of Beaver County and PA Crime Stoppers are offering a combined total reward of $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the 2016 homicide of SJAVANTE GILLIAM.

On June 1, 2016, at 5:42 a.m., Aliquippa Police Department officers responded to the 2100 block of McMinn Street to report a male subject had fallen to the sidewalk.

Upon arrival, officers found the victim dead from a bullet to the head.

The subject has been identified as Sjavante Gilliam, 28, a decorated United States Marine Corps veteran and former star of the Aliquippa Quips football team.

The Beaver County Detective’s Office was called to assist in the investigation and the area was searched.

Gilliam’s vehicle, a 2016 Ford Taurus, Pennsylvania license plate KBG8805, was located in the 2100 block of McMinn Street that morning.

Gilliam was last seen in the Main Street Bar area at around 12.30pm approximately 5 hours before his body was discovered.

Interviews of neighbors surrounding the scene by investigators yielded no immediate witnesses and the crime remains unsolved.

In hopes of solving the case and bringing justice to Gilliam’s family after six years, the Beaver County Crime Solvers will temporarily match the PA Crime Stoppers award for information leading to an arrest this week. The increased reward will be available from June 3-10, making those with information eligible for a $10,000 reward.

After June 10, the additional Crime Solvers reward will expire and callers will only receive the PA Crime Stoppers $5,000.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to anonymously contact the Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-4PA-TIPS (8477) or Crime Solvers at 724-774-2000 or online at https://www.p3tips.com/tipform.aspx?ID=107

All callers to Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers remain anonymous and may be eligible for a CASH REWARD for information leading to an arrest, solving a crime/cold case, or locating a wanted/fugitive or missing person.

All information is accurate as of the date of publication and may be changed or updated.
