Reward increased to $103K for information in the death of Gage Jackson
Crime Stoppers has announced the reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the death of Gage Jackson in Charlotte County has been increased to $103,000.
The additional reward money is coming from an anonymous donor, in the hopes that a Crime Stoppers tip will lead to answers in this unsolved case.
Jackson, 19, was reported missing in March of 2019, and a boater found his body in Prairie Creek 11 days later.
Nearly two years later, Crime Stoppers and detectives are still seeking information about what happened to Jackson and who may have been involved in his death. A billboard was posted along US 41 in Punta Gorda this week, near Alligator Creek, announcing the reward increase.
“We are confident that there are people in the community who know what happened to Gage, as well as the people who were in his orbit who may have been less than forthcoming with information,” said Trish Routte, Crime Stoppers Coordinator. “His family deserves to have those questions answered so that Gage may finally rest in peace.”
Anyone with information on the death of Gage Jackson is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
All callers will remain anonymous and will be eligible for a cash reward of up to $100,000 from the anonymous donor and $3,000 from Crime Stoppers. The additional reward money is for a tip that leads to an arrest and conviction. The $3,000 reward money from Crime Stoppers is for arrest only.
