Lowcountry car giant O.C. Welch is offering a reward for information that would help authorities solve some of the unsolved murders in Jasper County.

He's offering $1,000 to each person who has information that would lead to an arrest and conviction of the folks responsible for the murders.

According to authorities, there are 20 unsolved murders in Jasper county, and two of them occurred this year.

Darius Woods was found shot to death in his house back in May, and Shaquille Grant's body was found in his car parked behind a Days Inn last month.

Welch is not connected to any of the victims. He said he's offering the reward because he's tired of senseless killing and seeing parents crying.

"I have been in this community for most of my life and I'm just sick and tired of all the crime," said Welch. "It's pretty sad. It's just gotten way out of control, and we need to spend a lot more money on crime prevention."

Welch is also joining folks in the community for the first annual Stop the vVolence Rally on July 27.
