Tipsters can earn up to $12,000 for information leading to the identification or arrest of the suspects involved in the Alexandrea Thompson Homicide investigation
Rewards in the Alexandrea Thompson Homicide investigation continue to rise above the standard $1,000.00 that Crimestopper’s will offer toward any Homicide Investigation.
