CrimeStoppers giving maximum cash reward to tipster in Torrey Scott case

Crime stoppers giving maximum cash reward to tipster in Torrey Scott case.

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - CrimeStoppers lets tipsters give information in criminal cases anonymously and for rewards when they are solved.

Thursday, they're announcing that they are giving a source in one case the maximum cash reward.

A tipster was the person who identified Torrey Scott as the suspect in the 2014 rape and murder of Lisa Pynn in Port Wentworth. Scott was eventually convicted of her rape and death, along with the sexual assaults of three other women.

CrimeStoppers officials say they exist because of tipsters like this because cases may go unsolved without their help.

"Even on the board of directors, we have no idea who the individual is. There's no one within the staff, at no time does anyone attached with the organization know who that tipster is. It truly is anonymous, you truly are a number to us," said Michael Owens, with CrimeStoppers.

If you have any knowledge about any fugitives or criminal activity, please call CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020 anytime.

Tipsters always remain anonymous, and if the tip provides new information that leads to an arrest, the tipster can be eligible for a cash reward.
