Cowboys are my heros.
Cops in MS can only at this point wait for a lead to locate "suspects".
Then hope to get picked.

I am sure the Ocean City PD works ever lead they get, but I am sure they do not get a lot of leads. I would think they are waiting for some police agency to call say we're think we got your suspect. Or they have contact with someone match discription. Case is over 10 years old, so it is a waiting game.Ocean SPRINGS is comitted to solving this case. The case is OPEN and being worked. Think positive thoughts. Mike was one in a million in many ways. The fact we are all so involved in his case is testament to his character. His many, many friends will not rest easy until his murderer is found and punished.
This guy may be in jail somewhere right now. Maybe he is stupid enough to talk to a cell mate. He also may be too smart to do that. Best chance might be a former girl friend, and then again he may be a loner. If a perp keeps his mouth shut it can be very hard to catch him.
If someone was going to talk it would have happened by now. Homicides by drifter types are rarely solved and adding 10yrs to the equation makes it even less likely. This is the definition of a 'cold case'.
I have a standing offer of $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the murderer of Mike Surber!Well I understand there is a reward, money motivate people, people like money, if the information is put infont of enought people, the guy will be caught, unless dead.
Communication that the guy is wanted, and anyone turning in get reward. If convicted, could be problem, the conviction. Then turner inner gets nothing but credit for catch suspect.
Mike Surber's brother, Steve, has put up a $10,000 reward for info leading to info & arrest of Mike's murderer.
We have also opened a "Go Fund Me" account for donations to add to the reward. We are hoping that folks who can spare a few bucks will sweeten the pot so as to re-kindle and sharpen interest in the apprehension of this suspect. The account is:
Steve also has put up a PayPal account for those who prefer that method of donation: paypal.me/pools/c/7ZRWK4xBkh

Please forward this information to your friends. Thank you!
Thanks to JAM and my wife for their involvement in this cause which is dear to us all.
I’m assuming that law enforcement (the FBI) has looked into similar cases of murder, assault and robbery that have the same if not a
similar fact situation as the Surber case. In other words is this a stand alone set of facts or is this a pattern or script the murderer followed or follows.
I have to wonder if this guy somehow got his karma somewhere else. Maybe he tried to rob the wrong guy and got himself killed. I do know one thing. That this type of crime will work every time until the last time, when it doesn't work, and it backfires on them. Been a lot of bad guys who got done in by their "victim." Especially now, when so many people are packing concealed.
