BROOKLYN - As police continue to hunt for the suspects wanted in the kidnapping and death of a Williamsburg businessman, family and friends say they've increased the reward for any information on who's responsible.

A $25,000 reward is now being offered for any information that would lead to an arrest.

Menachem Stark, 39, was abducted outside of his office on Rutledge Street Thursday night. Surveillance video shows two suspects struggling with Stark and forcing him into a Dodge minivan. Police say other surveillance video shows the suspects waiting for about 20 minutes for Stark outside of his office.

Stark's body was found inside of a dumpster at a gas station on Long Island two days later.

Police have not determined a motive in the crime, but speculation has surfaced that it may have had something to do with his business dealings.
