A marijuana dispensary robbery in Hollywood ended with the gruesome stabbing death of a bud-tender, Ila Packman.

It happened more than two years ago at a store called Hollywood Holistic in the 1600 block of North El Centro Avenue, but cops don't seem to have any leads.

And so the LAPD today is asking for your help:

The department announced yesterday that a $50,000 reward for information leading to the capture and conviction of two "possible" murder suspects has been put up by the city thanks to Hollywood Councilman Eric Garcetti.

The violence happened June 24, 2010, at about 9:05 p.m., according to the LAPD. Although the robbers took security video equipment with them (along with $3,000 worth of bud, the department says), some images were captured.

This is the duo they're looking for:
