Family reminds tipster can stay anonymous to earn $70,000 reward
DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Dougherty County Police say they continue to investigate the violent home invasion shooting of a South Georgia business owner, but with no arrests so far.
It happened less than two weeks ago.
Police say 49 year old Putt Wetherbee, the president of Nut Tree Pecan, was attacked in a vicious home invasion on Gravel Hill Road.
Wetherbee's father, Frank, says his son was beaten, stabbed, and shot twice, and left for dead for more than 11 hours.
Family and friends have offered a $70,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the attackers.
Dougherty County Police say they have had few tips called in, and they are following up on those.
The family is asking for information for justice for Wetherbee, who remains paralyzed from the waist down as he recovers.
They remind that you can stay anonymous and still receive the reward, by calling CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
