Pawnbroker's Assoc. offers reward for information in murder case

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Mississippi Pawnbroker's Association is offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for murdering a Waynesboro Pawn Shop Manager.

It has been four months since Waynesboro Pawn Shop Manager Henry Adcock was brutally murdered and Jones County Investigators still haven't made any arrests in the case.

In June, Adcock was shot to death in his Ellisville home and the pawn shop he worked at was robbed.

The Pawnbroker's Association has joined Jones County Investigators in looking for clues about the murder and are now offering a reward to anyone with information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Association President Kevin MacDonald said, "The Mississippi Pawnbroker's Association is going to put up a $2500 reward to anybody that would come forward to help us and lead to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons that were responsible for the crime."

Jones County Investigator Sgt. Robert Little said, "We still have several leads that we are continuing to follow up on. We haven't been able to develop a suspect as quickly as we would like but we are very thankful for the Pawnbroker's Association, they have always been a good partner to law enforcement."

If you have any information about the murder contact the Jones County Sheriff's Department or Crime Stoppers.
