New Reward In Oconee Cold Case

August 12, 2013

A new, anonymous, reward is being offered to help solve a near-27 year old Oconee County cold case. The Sheriff’s Office says someone has put up $10,000 for a tip leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer or killers of Marcus Lee in December 1986. The case is the oldest of Oconee’s cold cases, which have gotten new attention since Mike Crenshaw took over as Sheriff in January and began spotlighting them via internet, and both standard and social media. Lee was found beaten to death at his home near the Richland Road/North Seed Farm Road intersection on December 8, 1986. Detectives say they have reason to believe Mr. Lee knew his attackers. They also feel robbery was the motive. If you have any information or tips you’re asked to call the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office at 638-4111.
