SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Police in Savannah are offering a big reward for tips that lead to a break in slaying that remains unsolved after 17 years.
An unnamed donor is helping Savannah police offer a $100,000 reward for information that leads to solving the fatal shooting of 42-year-old Randy Stevens.
Stevens was killed inside his Savannah home early on the morning of Oct. 10, 2002. He was getting ready to head to work at the city's vehicle maintenance facility. Police suspect Stevens was killed during a robbery.
Police Chief Roy Minter told news outlets: "This is another example of how we never give up" on unsolved crimes.
Larry Branson, director of the local Crimestoppers program, says the donor decided to fund a cash reward out of concern about crime in general in Savannah.
