MAGNA, Utah, Nov. 5, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — It’s been 14 years since Jason Royter was found stabbed to death in his Magna home, but the Unified Police Department of Greater Salt Lake hasn’t stopped looking for his killer.

According to a UPDSL post on Facebook, a $5,000 reward is being offered to anyone who has information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Royter’s death.

The body of 33-year-old Jason Royter was found in his home at 7383 W. Paine Road (3745 South) on Aug. 6, 2005. His girlfriend came home at about 1:30 a.m. and discovered the body.

Police say there were no signs of forced entry, so Royter may have let the suspect in voluntarily.

When officers arrived, they observed signs of a violent struggle in the home. Royter had been stabbed multiple times and bled to death.

Anyone with information that could help police solve this cold case is asked to call 385-468-9793 or email [email protected].
