The Citizens Crime Commission of Delaware Valley is offering a $20,000 reward for information about the slaying of a man who once belonged to a radical anti-establishment group.

John Gilbride, a former member of MOVE, was shot and killed outside his Maple Shade apartment on Sept. 7, 2002.

"We are still giving this case daily attention, and we won't stop until we have brought Mr. Gilbride's killer to justice," Burlington County Prosecutor Robert D. Bernardi said.

Gilbride, 34, was shot as he sat in his car outside his unit at Ryan's Run.

A bullet shattered the vehicle's driver's side window and struck Gilbride, who was strapped in his seat belt.

The killing followed a bitter custody dispute between Gilbride and his ex-wife, MOVE member Alberta Africa. The two had a son.

Authorities have never said whether they established a motive for or suspects in Gilbride's slaying.

Gilbride, who was a baggage handler at Philadelphia International Airport, became involved with MOVE while he was a student at Temple University.

The Citizens Crime Commission is offering a $20,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who shot John Gilbride in September 2002. Anyone with information is asked to call (215) 546-TIPS.
