SOUTH SALT LAKE — Family members are hopeful that a $10,000 reward will yield information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for the Easter Sunday shooting death of Matthew Holt.

On April 16, Holt, 46, of South Jordan, was found in a parked car, near 3200 South and 900 West.

South Salt Lake Police are asking for information from anyone that was near the Jordan River Parkway Trail between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Easter Sunday, when the shooting likely occurred.

Police have additionally identified a suspect vehicle from the shooting, a silver Chevrolet Sonic hatchback with a model year between 2012 and 2016.

Police released three new photos of the suspect vehicle on Thursday.

Maxine and Earl Holt, the mother and father of Matthew Holt, are hopeful that the suspect will be arrested.

Holt's parents said they do not want revenge for their son's death, only the assurance that no one else is hurt by the suspected shooter.

"We just don't want anybody else to have to go through what we have been going through," said Maxine Holt.

She said she had no idea why anyone would kill her son.

"He was just a good man," Earl Holt said.

Anyone with information about the death of Matthew Holt can call South Salt Lake Police Dispatch at 801-840-4000. Email:
