Jasmine Moore, 15, was slain inside her family’s East Fourth Street home, which her killer tried to burn down on Aug. 9, 2009. She was one day away from beginning her sophomore year at Bacon County High School.
Alma Police Chief Brandon Sellers said Thursday that most of the reward money is from a single anonymous source.
To be eligible for the reward, a person must provide independent information previously unknown to investigators. That information also must lead to the conviction of the killer or killers in order for the reward to be claimed, Sellers said.
Brenda Moore found her daughter’s body when she returned home from work that morning. She previously told the Times-Union that Jasmine “was a lovable person … always the type to make friends wherever she was.”
Jasmine delighted in baby-sitting the young children of family and friends, and studied hard to ensure her grades would be good enough to join the military upon graduating, her mother said.
The teen sang in the choir at church, and had played clarinet in the school band until she gave it up to focus on her studies. Jasmine also was active in the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America club at the high school.
Anyone with information is urged to call Alma police Capt. John Murray at (912) 632-8751 or the Georgia Bureau of Investigation at (912) 389-4103. Callers may remain anonymous.
