The Texas Department of Public Safety is offering a reward of up to $6000 for information regarding the 1994 homicide of Samantha Zublionis. The tip for the increased reward is to be received before next month’s featured Texas Rangers Case is announced.

The body of Zublionis, 17, was found on Sept. 3, 1994, in Frio County.

The investigation determined that Zublionis was a victim of a homicide.

She lived in San Antonio and was last seen on Aug. 30, 1994. At the time of her disappearance, she was in the process of obtaining her own apartment while working at Wendy’s Restaurant. She attended Mac Arthur High School and was temporarily staying at different friends' homes and was last living at the Danbury Apartments in northeast San Antonio.

Rangers are seeking information about her murder and disappearance.
