Governor Bentley Announces Reward in 8-Year-Old Girl's Death
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Gov. Robert Bentley says anyone with information that leads to a suspect's arrest and conviction in an eight-year-old girl's death will receive a $5,000 reward.
Hiawayi Robinson was reported missing Tuesday, and her body was found on Thursday.
Bentley says in a statement released Friday that he and his wife were heartbroken by Robinson's death. He says state law enforcement agencies have assisted police in the girl's hometown of Prichard, and 10 State Bureau of Investigation agents will remain until an arrest is made.
Bentley encouraged anyone with information about the girl's death to come forward.
