It's a wanted poster for a delivery truck -- and investigators in the D-C area sniper shootings hope it will lead to an arrest.
Police are releasing composite photos of a white box truck witnesses saw near the attacks.
The sniper is now linked to eight deaths and two woundings in Maryland, D-C and Virginia.
Police are not saying if they know who they're looking for or if the sniper acted alone.
But the reward in the case has grown to one-MILLION dollars.
Jennifer Miller has the latest from Rockville, Maryland.

Shiite Muslim leaders in Lebanon and Iran are expressing outrage over remarks by the Reverend Jerry Falwell. Last week, on the program 60- Minutes, Falwell called Islam's prophet a terrorist. An Iranian paper quotes a high- ranking religious leader as saying Falwell is a quote "mercenary and must be killed."

The reported statements came during Friday prayers, and the Muslim leader went on to say that Falwell's death "is a religious duty,'' but that his case should not be tied to the Christian community.
