Item worn by suspectThe reward has been increased for information leading to an arrest in the murder of a man in Macoupin County on New Year’s Day 2015.  34-year-old Cody Adams was found shot to death in his home in Woodburn, and a local Crimestoppers group has increased the reward for information to $10,000.
