The 24-year-old worked as the night manager of the Alamo Apartments on Broadway Avenue in Bedford. On March 13, 1987, she was found dead inside her home with multiple knife wounds, police said.

Zavodny’s boyfriend was arrested and charged with her murder in 1990, but was found not guilty.

In July, the Bedford Police Department announced recent discoveries prompted officers to reopen the case. Then, earlier this year, investigators presented Zavodny’s murder to the Vidocq Society, a members-only group of experts who meet in Philadelphia to discuss cold cases.

The Bedford Police Department, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office and Crime Stoppers have increased the reward for information to $10,000. Anyone with tips should call police at 216-598-1356
