The Maritime Academy of Toledo Foundation has set up a reward fund for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for killing 16-year-old Tyler McIntoush.

The McIntoush youth, who was shot dead on Collingwood Boulevard near Nottingham Terrace on July 24, was a student at Maritime Academy. The foundation has so far raised $2,500 for the reward fund. Anyone wishing to contribute can bring a check, written out to the foundation, to 803 Water St., the physical address of the school where the McIntoush youth would have been a junior this year. In the “memo” line of the check, donators should specify that the funds are for the “Tyler reward fund,” said the foundation‘s president Renee Marazon.‍‍

During a news conference today announcing the fund, Mrs. Marazon described the McIntoush youth as a good student who was well liked by his peers. The boy‘s mother, Oleen Clinton, became emotional as she pleaded with the killer or killers to come forward.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111. Callers may remain anonymous.
