The FBI is trying to keep the unsolved 2001 murder of Seattle federal prosecutor Thomas Crane Wales out in the public eye.

The latest: The FBI has posted on its website a summary of the case along with Wales’ photo and reminder that the Justice Department is offering up to a $1 million reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the gunman.

Authorities said Wales, who was a federal prosecutor for more than 18 years, was shot in his basement around 10:40 p.m. on Oct. 11, 2001 as he sat at a desk working on his computer.

Authorities said the shooter stood in the backyard of Wales’ home and shot him several times through a basement. Wales died the next day.

Wales graduated from Harvard University in 1974 and went to Hofstra Law School. He joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle in 1983 and specialized in fraud prosecutions. He is survived by two adult children.
