Anonymous donor gives thousands to help locate killer

It's been more than a month since a Columbus murder suspect has been on the run.

Now, the family of Richard Collier who was killed is getting help to capture the person responsible.

Just last week Collier's mother Dawn Boyd says the family received a call from a person who is donating $5,000 to help with the arrest.

The person wishes to remain anonymous.

Columbus police confirmed Monday afternoon they are still actively searching for the suspect, Drevon Johnson.

"Anonymity is at the utmost for that person. They can be very specific if they give information to the police and that leads to his arrest then we can work with that one person. We are not concerned with who they are, just to give them the money," Dawn Boyd, the mother of Richard Collier told News Leader Nine.
Richard Collier was shot at a home on Hodges Drive during a party May 14th.
Johnson was named a suspect five days later.
Boyd says she is hoping Johnson will turn himself into police to give his side of the story.
