KUT News

Gov. Rick Perry is offering a $100,000 reward for information that leads to those responsible for the shootings of Kaufman County Assistant District Attorney Mark Hasse, District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia.

At a press conference today, Gov. Perry vowed that those responsible would be caught.

“I have full confidence that this investigation will lead to the conviction of whoever perpetrated these insidious crimes,” Perry said. “And it is our hope and our expectation that these rewards will help convince those who may be holding onto important information to come forward.”

Those with any information about the case are encouraged to call Texas Crime Stoppers at (877)847-7522 or email Kaufman County Crime Stoppers.
