Reward of up to £10,000 offered to help catch suspect in Coventry hit and run which killed Keaton Slater

Coventry Editorial 21st Jun, 2024   0

A REWARD of up to £10,000 has been put up for information leading to the capture of Dolars Aleksanders who is wanted over a fatal hit-and-run collision in Coventry.

Aleskanders is a prime suspect after 12-year-old Keaton Slater was killed after being hit by a car in Radford Road at around 4.30pm last Friday (June 14). The vehicle then made off.

Crimstoppers – a charity, independent of the police – is supporting the investigation by offering a reward of up to £10,000 for information the charity exclusively receives that leads to the arrest of 21-year-old Aleksanders. The reward is available for three months and is due to expire on September 20.

The advice is not to approach Aleksanders, but to contact the police or the charity Crimestoppers if people want to stay anonymous.

It comes as Keaton’s heartbroken family issued footage of the youngster opening a new iPhone on his 11th birthday, in January last year.

Alan Edwards, Regional Manager at the Crimestoppers charity, said: “A young boy has tragically lost his life and has left a devastating impact on so many people, especially Keaton’s family and friends.

“Our charity is supporting the police as they hunt for Aleksanders by offering a reward. We are reminding everyone – especially those who may be intimidated into silence – that they have the option to stay completely anonymous when contacting us.

“If you know where Aleksanders is and you contact Crimestoppers directly, you could be entitled to a reward of up to £10,000.

“Our charity is here for you if you do not want to speak to the authorities directly and prefer not to give your personal details.

“Crimestoppers is independent of the police and guarantees you stay completely anonymous.”

Crimestoppers is open 24/7, 365 days a year, both online and on the phone. Nobody will ever know who has contacted the charity and, it says, ‘they will be doing the right thing’.

Information passed directly to police will not qualify for a reward. Only information passed directly to Crimestoppers using the anonymous online form at or for young people or by calling their UK Contact Centre on 0800 555 111 will qualify


With Crimestoppers and Fearless, when people visit these sites, computer IP addresses are never traced. Telephone calls are never recorded, there is no caller line display and no 1471 facility. The charity is completely independent of the police and guarantees that your personal identity will always be protected.

Claiming a reward:

The reward will only be payable for information passed directly to Crimestoppers and not to the police. A reward code must be asked for when calling the charity on 0800 555 111. People contacting Crimestoppers via the anonymous online form, the ‘keeping in contact’ facility must be used and a reward code must be requested on initial contact with the charity.

More information about rewards can be found on the Crimestoppers’ website. This reward is available until September 20, as rewards offered for specific cases generally expire after three months.
