The family of Cory Barron is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the identification, arrest and prosecution of the people involved in the man's death, Dick A. Wrenn, of International Research Group, Inc., confirmed on Thursday.

Authorities never determined how Cory Barron fell down a trash chute at Progressive Field in July of 2014.

Barron's body was discovered in a Lorain County landfill July 22, 2014, five days after the Ballville Township man was last seen at a Jason Aldean concert. 

The Lorain County Coroner released the autopsy report In September 2014. Barron's cause of death was multiple blunt force impacts due to the fall down the trash chute. Though how he got into the chute was never determined, the release notes said no evidence of foul play was found.

Alcohol was detected in Barron's tissue, but the amount could not be measured due to the condition of the body, the coroner added. No other drugs were detected.

Cleveland police's investigation into the death of Barron was closed in 2015.
