The reward for information leading to his arrest is up to $10,000, offered by Crime Stoppers, and authorities are asking the public to share the link to the poster in hopes of establishing new leads to find and arrest Hoffman.

A federal warrant has been issued for Hoffman's arrest. He’s accused of killing his ex-boyfriend and business partner after a dispute at a Holiday gas station in Arden Hills. Hoffman and Phillips were co-founders of the Lush Food Bar in Minneapolis.
