Award increased for information on Gianni Belvedere

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities reached out to the public Wednesday for help in finding a Tierrasanta man who disappeared after his fiancee and younger brother were gunned down in a parked car at Westfield Mission Valley mall early on Christmas Eve.

The family of 24-year-old Gianni Leonardo Belvedere and San Diego County Crime Stoppers have posted a combined $10,000 reward for information on the whereabouts of the former Utah native, whom police have not named as a suspect in the killings.

About 1:15 a.m. Dec. 24, officers found Ilona Flint and Salvatore Belvedere, both 22, mortally wounded near a Christmas tree lot at the Camino del Rio North shopping center, which had been open late for last-minute holiday shoppers, homicide Lt. Mike Hastings said. Both had been shot in the head.

Flint, who managed to make a 911 call despite her grave condition, died at the scene. Salvatore Belvedere succumbed to his wounds at a hospital several days later.

The last known sighting of the missing man was in Mission Valley about three hours before the murders, authorities said. A relative has told reporters the elder brother went to the mall with the victims on the night of the shooting, though police have not confirmed that claim.

Gianni Belvedere is a 6-foot-1-inch, roughly 160-pound white man with brown hair and brown eyes. He may be driving a green 2004 Toyota Camry, Utah license plate B154V2.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts was asked to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or contact the agency online at sdcrimestoppers.com. Tipsters may remain anonymous.
