Wichita police are hoping someone can provide clues for last month's mysterious murder of a pizza delivery driver. And Pizza Hut is stepping up with a $10,000 reward as motivation.

Hasan Rahman's wife April is tearfully begging for justice.

"He deserves so much better than this. There's that heavy feeling that knowing that somebody did this and we don't know who."

On the morning of November 26, police found Hasan in the trunk of his car. He had been shot to death, and his car taken to a neighborhod just north of Towne West Square at Douglas and Rock Road.

He was out delivering for Pizza Hut the night before, but never returned to the restaurant. So far, investigators say they have no clues and no leads in his murder.

Pizza Hut's $10,000 reward is in addition to the $2,500 rewards already offered by Crime Stoppers. 

Rahman moved to the United States from Bangladesh seven years ago, hoping to make a better life for himself. He married April three years ago. She's struggling to understand the reason for his murder. 

"He had no bad habits, no enemies, nothing about him could possibly make someone want to hurt him," she says.

Anyone with information on the murder is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 316-267-2111. All tips will remain anonymous.
