A New York businessman is putting up a 50 thousand dollar reward for information leading to Sarah Wisnosky's "real killer."
And Derek Barnabei's (barn-uh-BAY'S) lawyers say a new D-N-A test could prove their client's innocence -- or guilt.

Wisnosky left Lynchburg for her freshman year at Old Dominion University.
She began dating Derek Barnabei.
On September 21st, 1993, she was killed with blows from something like a ball peen hammer to her head-- in Barnabei's room in a house he shared with three other men.
Her body was dumped in the Elizabeth River.
Her lawyers announced a 50-thousand dollar reward today... and asked that the state D-N-A test blood found under Wisnosky's fingernails.

The troubled Arcadia Leadership Academy in Buchanan (BUCK-annon) has lost its state appeal.
The alternative school for boys was denied a license to operate as a boarding school in April.
That's after inspections by state education and social services officials resulted in 24 pages of safety, discipline, and health violatons.
A spokesman for the Academy says the school will now conduct a legal appeal-- although it must go through the same state agency.
