Reward fund reaches $25,000 in death of Arlington man

As Arlington police continue to investigate the mysterious late December killing of Carl Diener, his friends have gotten together and raised about $25,000 in reward money.

Diener, 57, of Arlington was stabbed Dec. 29 just before 3 a.m., apparently as he walked to his job opening a local gym.

Diener, a retired federal worker, was an avid exerciser and racquetball player, as well as a jovial presence at Arlington Sport & Health, friends said.

Police have called the reward fund a "remarkable grassroots effort." For more information, visit

Anyone with information about the slaying is asked contact Detective Rosa Ortiz at 703- 228-7402 or
