    Five years later, a reward is still out for a cold case murder involving Bucks County attorney Eric Birnbaum. (Published Tuesday, Feb 11, 2014)

    Five years ago today, someone walked up to a local attorney as he arrived for work and shot the lawyer in the head.

    Eric Birnbaum died a short time later.

    Five years later his murder remains unsolved.

    Birnbaum, a personal injury lawyer, was shot in the head as he stood near his car outside his office in Holland, Bucks County on Feb. 11, 2014.

    A secretary at Birnbaum's law firm said a lone gunman executed Birnbaum outside the office. Officials don't believe the killing was a random act.

    In the days after the killing, investigators said they had very little go to on, just a description of a man wearing a knit hat and sunglasses possibly driving a blue, older model minivan seen speeding from the scene.

    A $10,000 reward was offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction but so far the 51-year-old's killer remains on the loose.
