LONG BEACH (CBSLA.com) — Police say they have new information in the 1975 killing of a Long Beach police officer who was investigating a suspicious vehicle near his home.

Officer Franke Neal Lewis, 28, was gunned down near his East Long Beach home as he apparently went to investigate something in a vehicle parked nearby that aroused his suspicion, Long Beach police officials said.

The department, which is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Lewis’ shooter, will release new information and photos in the case at an afternoon news conference Tuesday.
