Governor’s office offers reward in teen’s murder
A reward is now being offered in the case of a High Point teen who was found in a Greensboro lake in March.
Gov. Pat McCrory signed a proclamation offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Dorien Daymon Jackson.
“Reward money can serve as an incentive to people who may have information but are reluctant to reach out to law enforcement,” said Susan Danielsen, public information officer with Greensboro Police Department.
Jackson, 18, went missing on Jan. 10 after leaving his home at 1129 Tangle Lane in High Point.
His body was discovered on March 3 in Lake Townsend in Greensboro. An autopsy showed he died from a single gunshot wound to the back of his neck.
A suspect in the case has yet to be identified.
Detectives Greensboro and High Point police departments and the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office have been working together on the case.
“This is still an active and ongoing investigation,” Danielsen said.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Greensboro police at (336) 373-2255, the State Bureau of Investigation at (919) 662-4500, or Crimestoppers at (336) 373-2255.
