A $5,000 reward is offered for information leading to an arrest in the June 6 homicide of a Brooklet woman.

Bulloch County Sheriff’s investigators are probing the death of Betty Jean King, 51, George Road, which was ruled a homicide, said Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson. She was found dead in her home, but sheriff’s investigators are not releasing further details, citing an ongoing investigation as the  reason.

“Since June 6 Bulloch County Sheriff’s investigators have been busy interviewing numerous witnesses and processing items of evidence. At this time no arrests have been made in the homicide,” he said.

The victim’s family, who have been helpful in cooperating with investigators, expressed a desire to offer the $5,000 reward, which “would only be awarded to the individual who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the homicide,” Anderson said.”It is hoped that the offer of this reward will bring forward an individual who may have information which could close the case and bring justice to King’s family.”

The reward is being funded and supported by King’s family members Timothy King, husband of victim, and John Powell, victim’s father.
