New York State Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the recent death of the Pleasantville woman.

The reward was announced to media outlets on Friday as police continue to investigate and look for clues to solve the mysterious death of 76-year-old Linda Falkoff. Falkoff was found dead in her home on Oct. 30 after a mail carrier became suspicious when seeing mail pile up outside.

Police checked on her at the home located at 79 Grandview Ave. and found her body inside the house. They said that she was stabbed to death but have not made any public statements regarding the progress of the investigation since Nov. 1.

Falkoff is believed to have died about five days before her body was discovered.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call the New York State Crime Stoppers hot line at 1-866-313- TIPS (8477) 24 hours a day, seven days a week or download the Crime Stoppers Mobile App to an iPhone, Android phone or Blackberry and provide their information from their phone. The mobile app allows a person to call the hotline anonymously from their cell phone or send an e-mail tip or photo tip in an encrypted and untraceable environment.

Any information, however insignificant it may seem, could lead to the solving of this crime.

More information about New York State Crime Stoppers, a nonprofit organization that was formed to assist law enforcement throughout the state, can be found at Callers to the hotline or users of the mobile app may remain anonymous.
