Crime Stoppers offers $26K for tips in death of businessman
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee Crime Stoppers organization is offering $26,000 for information that could lead to an arrest in the shooting of a Memphis businessman.
News outlets report the reward was announced Monday by Memphis Crime Stoppers, a nonprofit, citizen-led agency that offers cash rewards for tips on crime.
Memphis authorities say 57-year-old Glenn Cofield was shot and killed in a church parking lot last week as he and his wife were leaving a fundraising event. Police believe the shooter was attempting to rob him.
Cofield was a local branch manager for a financial services company, and a board member of the Memphis Country Club.
The Commercial Appeal reports Crime Stoppers did not specify where the reward money came from.
