Reward offered in Glynn commissioner's death

POSTED: December 14, 2012 9:40 a.m.

BRUNSWICK — A reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the death of a Glynn County Commissioner.

Tom Sublett's body was found early Tuesday in the Frederica River near St. Simons Island after he failed to return home from a Monday night poker game with friends.

The Florida Times-Union (http://bit.ly/W7aiyL) reports the Glynn County Police Department is offering $25,000 for information in the case.

An autopsy determined Sublett was shot in his head before drowning, but the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has not ruled his death a homicide. Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering has said investigators found the commissioner's wallet with some items missing.

Sublett was finishing his first and only term on the Glynn County Commission after deciding not to seek re-election.
