REGIONAL: Glenn County officials offer reward for tips in homicide case

GLENN COUNTY – As detectives of the Glenn County Sheriff’s Office' Major Crimes unit continue their investigation into an April homicide, WeTip Inc. is assisting by offering up to $1,000 for information that would lead to an arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the crime.

The extremely charred body of Donald Scott Williams was found inside of what remained of an unoccupied home located on County Road 25, south of Orland in a rural farming area on Sunday, April 4, as Lake County News has reported.

Investigators believe an act of arson caused the home to be burned to the ground and destroyed.

An autopsy confirmed the initial findings that Williams had died at the hands of another. The services of a forensic odontologist was needed to positively identify the remains as those of Williams.

On Monday Glenn County Sheriff Larry Jones reported that the agency was working with WeTip to find leads in the case.

A caller to WeTip at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463) will remain completely anonymous and no one will ever know who made the call, Jones said.

Offering nationwide Internet access and hotlines, WeTip – founded in 1972 – is an anonymous crime reporting system for citizens and a valuable tool for law enforcement. WeTip stresses the complete anonymity of the caller.
