Police release new details, 15k reward in Old City killing of Kevin Kless

Kless, 23, was a 2010 Temple University grad and insurance claims representative.

Police have released revised details in Saturday morning’s fatal beating of Temple grad Kevin Kless, 23. They also announced that the city is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects responsible for his death and the Fraternal Order of Police is offering a $5,000 reward, Lodge 5 President John McNesby announced in a release today.

Kless and two women were walking on the 400 block of Chestnut Street around 2:25 a.m. when they flagged down a cab and Kless became involved in a conversation with the driver. An older model maroon sedan, possibly a Mazda, with four occupants that are now being described as light-complected and possibly Hispanic, pulled up behind the cab and began yelling at Kless, police said.

The sedan then pulled over and three of the men exited, beating and fatally injuring Kless. They fled  eastbound on Chestnut Street in the car, driven by a man who did not participate in the assault and who police are asking to come forward.

Kless died 17 hours later at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

The suspects are being described as a five-foot-ten man with a thin build, about 20 years old and wearing a white shirt with blue stripes, a 20-year-old six-foot man with a medium build wearing a maroon shirt and a six-foot-two man. Again, all are now being described as light-complected and possibly Hispanic.

Police are asking anyone with information to call 911, dial 215-686-TIPS (8477), submit an anonymous tip online, or call Homicide detectives at 215-686-3334, 3335 or 3336.
