Topeka, Kan. (WINE) - A reward is being offered in the case of murdered Hudson Crossing developer Corey Brown.
The attorney for Mo's Express, Billy Rock, said the convenience store at the Hudson Crossing shopping center is offering a reward of $2,500 for any information leading to an arrest or conviction in Brown's homicide case.
This is in addition to any rewards typically offered by Crime stoppers of Topeka or Douglas County.
Rock said he's trying to raise additional funds for the reward.
Rock told 13 News that Monroe Lock hart, a manager at Mo's Express was working on getting the store re-opened. "He's hoping to open Mo's Express next week," he said. The store had been closed for days. He would not elaborate on the reason for the delay, but attributed it to normal business processes.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office and Topeka Police, who are working jointly on the investigation, did not release any new information in the case.
But Corey Brown's mother, Jane, told 13 News, she felt confident authorities were making headway. "They know what they are doing," she said. "They are just not releasing information until they have all they need."
Corey Brown's body was found in northwest Douglas County a week ago, near the Shawnee County line. He went missing Tuesday of last week.
Brown was vice president of the company that developed and owns Hudson Crossing shopping center, near SE 15Th and Adams.
Two clerks at Mo's Express were shot and wounded during a November holdup, while an employee of the center's liquor store was killed in a Christmas Eve robbery.
In addition, a vehicle belonging to the Monroe Lock hart was found burning last Tuesday night near a Kansas River boat ramp on NE Seward.
