BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- The reward for information in the murder of eight people in Brunswick, Georgia is growing.

Thursday, the City of Brunswick gave an extra $15,000. The total reward is now at $50,000. That's making people like Darcelle Burant and Debby Temmer happy. They were out for a cup of coffee in downtown Brunswick, but they can't forget a killer might be among them.

"People are wondering who they are, and who's next, it's brought a lot of fear," said Debby Temmer.

It's that fear police and city leaders are trying to calm. They're working around the clock to solve this murder and Thursday the mayor of brunswick added an extra incentive to get people to come forward.

"Fifty thousand is a lot of money and hopefully it gets people talking," said Mayor Bryon Thompson. "We want to see whoever this perpetrator is to be brought to justice."

People like Temmer and Burant say for this community to heal, someone has to tell police what they know.

The chief of police is sitting down with Action News Friday to discuss further developments they've made in this case.

"Why people would keep that to themself, I have no idea. $50,000 is a lot of money to people in this economy, maybe it's what they need to come forward," said Temmer. "I think anything they do to find justice for that family would be a blessing," said Darcelle Burant.
