LOWNDES COUNTY, AL (WSFA) - More than nine months have passed without an arrest in a Lowndes County double-homicide and authorities are hoping an increase in reward money will spur new tips to heat up their investigation.
The bodies of Frank James Hill, 26, and Antoni Markee Means, 36, were found the night of Friday, Feb. 3. They'd been shot to death inside a vehicle, located on Williams Drive in the Mosses Community of Lowndes County.
Wednesday, the sheriff's office announced a reward increase that brings the pot to $13,000 for information on the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the murders. The money is coming from several places including $10,000 from the governor's office, $2,000 from the Lowndes County Commission, and $1,000 from CrimeStoppers.
Anyone with any information regarding the shooting is asked to call the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office at 334-548-2222, 334-548-6151 or 334-548-5900.
