$5,000 reward offered for information about skeletal remains found in 2012
Central Alabama Crime Stoppers announced a $5,000 reward Thursday for information about skeletal remains found in Opelika in 2012.
Authorities believe the remains belonged to a young black girl between the ages of 4 and 7 that was the victim of a homicide. The remains were found in a mobile home community on Hurst Street in January of 2012. Authorities have not been able to identify the girl or where she was originally from.
Investigators believed the child was malnourished and physically abused, and estimated that she died between 2010 and 2011. Police do not believe she was from the Opelika area.
