MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A total of $10,000 is now being offered in the Lowndes County triple homicide case.
The U.S. Marshals Service with the Gulf Coast Regional Task Force is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the suspect/s responsible for the murder of Montgomery twins Jordan and Taylor DeJerinett and their babysitter, Jack Mac Girdner.
A short time before that reward was announced, an anonymous donor from Montgomery offered his own $5,000 reward. He's now willing to be identified. His name is Mark Kitchens.
Kitchens says he and his wife Jennifer are offering their own reward so the families involved will find closure. He's also urging others in the community to step forward with money to grow the reward pot.
Kitchens says the donation comes as he remembers a friend, Mont Highley IV, who was murdered in 2003. That murder remains unsolved to this day.
If you have any information regarding suspect Deandra Lee's whereabouts, or if you need more information on donating to the reward pot, call the Alabama Bureau of Investigation.
The money will be paid out following a conviction.
