Reward for murdering a jail employee in Georgia, Alabama |  State information

PHENIX CITY, Ala. (AP) – An anti-crime group offered a $ 2,500 reward Wednesday for information leading to the arrest of a Georgia prison worker who was shot in Alabama.

Central Alabama CrimeStoppers put out the reward for killing Airreyon Trice, who was murdered in 2019 in Phenix City across the Chattahoochee River from Columbus, Georgia.

Trice, 24, was an inspector with the Georgia Department of Corrections. He was found shot dead in a vehicle parked in front of apartments.

Trice and another man were involved in an altercation prior to the shooting, according to a press release, but the other person was gone when police arrived and it was never arrested.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 334-215-7867.
