About 130-thousand dollars in reward money put up for the capture of two Georgia prisoners who allegedly murdered two prison guards may issued after all.
Putnam County, Georgia, Sheriff Howard Sills issued a release, saying they're presently looking into the facts about who or whom may be entitled to the reward money and will make an announcement when those matters are decided.
Last week, the sheriff said in a press conference none of the reward money would be handed out. But after hearing what happened in several Middle Tennessee cities, corrected his statement in a press release saying payments would be made accordingly.
Patrick Hale of Pruitt Road, where suspects Ricky Dubose and Donnie Rowe surrendered, asked Rutherford County Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh to call a press conference last Friday to "clear the air" about what happened at his home Thursday.
Hale stood over the suspects in his driveway after they surrendered for approximately three minutes before authorities arrived. It had been reported he held them at gun point. But he cleared up that misnomer during the press conference.
