Texas governor offering $3,000 for Big Country cold case, others

STAMFORD, Texas - The Texas Governor’s Office is turning up the heat on cold case murders – including one here in the Big Country.

Governor Greg Abbott announced the state will offer a $3,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in any of the state’s top 12 cold cases.

Among them is the 1988 murder of a Jones County girl.

Cortney Clayton was last seen Sept. 2, 1988, riding her bicycle to a convenience store a block from her home in Stamford. Her remains were found March 26, 1989 in a field 50 miles away.

In September, the Jones County District Attorney's Office released ‘aged’ sketches, showing what the suspect may look like now.
