O.C. Welch offering reward to help find Christopher Starks killer

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The emotional plea from the mother of a slain SSU student searching for answers has moved a local business owner to get involved in catching the killer.

Christopher Starks, 22, was shot at the Student Union last August.

O.C. Welch says he saw Starks mother on the news Tuesday night and he is now offering a $5,000 reward to get this person off the streets. He and his son, Chip, say as a community we have to get people to come forward with information with all of the unsolved murders and cold cases out there.

"We’re just tired of seeing young people killed and this family is just looking for some type of closure,” said O.C. Welch.

"We know that somebody out there knows what happened. We’re just asking that person to come forward and share what information they have,” said Chip Welch.

At this point, police do not have any leads in the case.
