LaGRANGE — The Troup County Sheriffs Office announced Friday that CrimeStoppers is offering a special reward for information leading to an arrest in the 2003 murder of William Kent Adams.

Adams, 39, of Arcadia, Missouri, was found sitting inside a red 1996 Ford Taurus that was still running on Ridley Avenue the night of April 15, 2003. His wallet was sitting in his lap and was completely empty. In addition, the passenger-side window on Adam’s car was rolled down, leading detectives to believe the motive for his murder was robbery.

No arrests in the case have been made.

Anyone with any information surrounding the murder of William Kent Adams was asked to called the LaGrange Police Department at 706-883-2603 and ask for Sgt. Mark Cavender or Sgt. William Nelson. People may also send in tips by messaging LPD on their Facebook page, or text them in anonymously to 888-777.
