ATLANTA – Glynn County is doubling the reward money being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the death of one of its commissioners.
Tom Sublett's body was found early Tuesday in the Frederica River near St. Simons Island after he failed to return home from an evening poker game with friends. An autopsy determined that Sublett was shot in his head before drowning, but the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has not determined whether his death is a homicide.
The Glynn County Police Department is offering $25,000 for information in the case. On Thursday night, county commissioners voted to match that offer.
Sublett was finishing his first and only term on the county's board of commissioners after deciding not to seek re-election. He was 52.
