Monday update: Reward inching cops closer to solving murder case

A $5000 reward offered in a local murder case hasn’t generated an arrest, but it’s generating some buzz.

Demopolis police chief Tommie Reese and district attorney Greg Griggers have secured a $5,000 reward from Gov. Bob Riley for information that would lead to an arrest and conviction in the unsolved murder of Randy Warren.

Randy Warren’s death occurred on Feb. 16, 2008, on Ash Street in Demopolis.

“We’ve had one phone call,” Reese said. “That person left a little information and we need to talk to that person again. He can do that anonymously if he wants to so we can get more information.”

“I hope that someone with information will come forth and help bring the person or persons involved to justice and bring closure to the Warren family,” Reese said.

“The Warren Family and the entire community of Demopolis need to know that law enforcement will do everything in its power to give them a peaceful existence.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Demopolis Police Department at (334) 289-3073 or the DPD Tip Line at (334) 289-1475.
