Victoria Shafer, a 44-year-old photographer in Ohio, was killed last month after part of a tree fell on her during a photoshoot. Now, Southern Ohio Crime Stoppers is offering a $10,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.
Shafer was shooting a group of seniors in a woodsy canyon in Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio when she was hit by a falling tree branch and subsequently died.
After authorities investigated the scene, they began to suspect foul play.
Editor's Tip: When photographing weddings, it's important to have at least two camera bodies, that way you have a backup if something goes wrong. You can easily carry two cameras using a Holdfast MoneyMaker Dual Camera Harness, which also keeps your cameras at your fingertips for taking quick shots. Additionally, carrying two camera bodies allows you to minimize lens changes. Have an 85mm prime lens on one body and a 24-70mm zoom on the other so you can get beautiful portraits with the 85mm prime and still have the capability to zoom in for detail shots with the 70-200mm lens.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources knows there was a group of people on top of the cave where the tree branch fell from at the time of the event.
Furthermore, they have descriptions of them.
