HENRY CO., AL (WSFA) - The family of a murder victim is offering an even bigger reward a day after the Henry County Sheriff's Office pushed a cold case from 2001 back into the light in hopes that someone in the community will have a piece of information that may crack the case wide open.

Danny Paul Miller's family and Crimestoppers were offering $35,000 in rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction on those responsible for their relative's death. Friday, the reward was increased to $45,000.

Miller's body was found by relatives around 8:00pm on December 22, 2001. He'd been brutally beaten and left lying in the front yard of his home on County Road 2. He died a short time later at a Dothan hospital.

For nearly a decade, Miller's murderer has remained on the loose.

The family of Danny Paul Miller, as well as Crime Stoppers, is offering a combined $35,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the  vicious crime.

Miller was 50-years-old at the time of his death. Due to the nature and location of the assault it is the belief of the primary investigative team that Miller may have possibly known his attacker(s).

If anyone has any information on the murder of Mr. Miller, pleases contact the Henry County Sheriff's Office at 334-585-3131 or Crime Stoppers at 334-585-5200.
