Any resident with key information that leads to the criminal conviction of whoever killed a 48-year-old Glidden woman and her son last month is eligible for a $10,000 reward, Carroll County Sheriff Doug Bass said Monday.

The reward offer comes 15 days after a neighbor found Tami and Karl DeVore, 30, dead in Tami DeVore's trailer house on the south side of Glidden on May 18.

The neighbor and state and county law officers have declined to publicly reveal the details of their deaths, which a state medical examiner ruled were homicides.

"We're following a bunch of leads," Bass said last week.

Friends and family of the DeVores held a funeral for them a week ago in Carroll. They placed flowers, flags and crosses - and two cans of Bud Light beer - in front of the trailer house as a memorial.

A plastic cat carrier sat askew this week to the side of the trailer house in a pile of Tami DeVore's possessions. DeVore had tended dozens of cats there as a way to cope with the deaths of her three young boys, who died in a Council Bluffs apartment fire more than two decades ago.
