— Authorities are now offering a $15,000 reward for information in the case of a Domino's Pizza assistant manager who died Monday from injuries he received in an apparent robbery over the weekend.

Kenneth "Kenny" Ring, 24, was found inside the store at 2001 Widewaters Parkway shortly after midnight Saturday, police said.

Police don't have a suspect, and they have asked the public for information – no matter how insignificant it might seem – to help them solve the case.

Specifically, they want to speak to anyone who was in the area from midnight to 12:39 a.m. Saturday.

"The Knightdale Public Safety Department has received several leads from the public that we are following up on," police Chief Shawn Brown said Friday. "We still want to encourage anyone who may have any information about this incident to call."

Domino's Pizza initially offered a $5,000 reward in the case. Eastern Wake Crime Stoppers and the Town of Knightdale is now also sponsoring the reward, which is available for information leading to a conviction in the case.

Anyone with information can call the Knightdale Public Safety Department at 919-217-2261.

"That least bit of (information) that seems so unimportant – it might be that one key thing that the police are looking for to tie this all together," Ring's father, Dan Ring, said Thursday. "It will turn the lights on for the investigators and give them more information."

    They'll be caught. The smartest thing to do would be to turn themselves or their partner in. The one who shows remorse will get a break. Better to do it BEFORE they catch you. You get a better break then.

    The police NEVER give up on a murder!

    I don't and will never understand why these kind of businesses continue to keep late hours. They are putting their employees in all sorts of danger. Then there are the employee parents, don't they care at all. I would never allow my child to work at such a place at those awful hours. Today it is dangerous to do so. Meanwhile, where is the manager or president. Safely in their home.

    "Maybe they should start investigating the recipients of pizza deliveries that night. Historically, criminals call in pizza delivery requests, and then proceed with various styles of robbery."

    But dont those robberies happen to the drivers? Not the ones at the store still?

    I hope raising the reward will help.
