ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The St. Louis College of Pharmacy is putting up a $10,000 reward for anyone with information leading to the arrest of the person or people responsible for the death of one of their students over the weekend.
President John Pieper says 20-year-old Nicholas Kapusniak was well liked at the tight-knit community at the school.
“He was just a warm, friendly, typical 20-year-old,” says Pieper.
And he says on the campus of only 1,350 students, his classmates are having a hard time dealing with his death.
“Students are in shock and I think we’re seeing the normal grieving processes that individuals go through.”
He says the school is working with Crimestoppers to offer the reward. Crimestoppers is already offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
In response to reports that his death could have been the result of a dispute over parking, Pieper says he hadn’t heard that from police, but knows they’ve interviewed everyone who was at the party when Kapusniak was shot.
