The Los Angeles office of Lamar Advertising Co. (linked here), has donated some 200 billboards around the Dodger Stadium area to publicize the $100,000 reward and help police find the two men who attacked San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow on Opening Day back on March 31.

NBC4.com reported that after Lamar employees declined to go on a company-wide day at the ballpark, the company’s VP and General Manager donated the ad space throughout L.A. and Orange Counties.

“I think it’s a great thing that this company’s doing this,” L.A. police detective P.J. Morris told the Santa Cruz Sentinel. “I think it will certainly generate more people calling. Anything out there that can generate interest in the public, the better.”

Detectives said Thursday they had received 500 clues on the case since the attack about six weeks ago on Stow, 42, who suffered a severe skull fracture and has been in and out of a medically induced coma at L.A. County-USC Medical Center.

The attackers wore Dodgers apparel and were 18 to 25 years old, police said.

The paper reports that his family is considering moving him to UC San Francisco Medical Center as early as this weekend.

In a statement released today, LAC-USC officials said: “The medical team for Mr. Bryan Stow has deemed Mr. Stow’s condition stable to be able to be transferred to San Francisco General and Trauma Center in San Francisco as early as Monday morning. Please note that his overall condition remains critical and he continues to be in a coma.”

His youngest sister, Bonnie Stow, says her brother is more responsive now and the situation is a little more upbeat.

Los Angeles police asked anyone with information to call the anonymous tip line at 800-222-8477 or detectives at 213-847-4261.
