Reward offered in mysterious homicide in Williamson Co.

WILLIAMSON COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

A reward is now being offered by the family of a woman who was found in a burned home in 2014.

September 6 marks the two year anniversary of Lisa Uzzle's death.

An investigation showed Uzzle died as a result of multiple gun shot wounds.

Her body was found in a badly burned home on south McGeesville Road in rural Williamson County.

Sheriff Bennie Vick wanted to remind residents that the case is still active. 

“We know there is a person or people who have information that will help solve the case,” Vick said. “This is still very much an active investigation. It’s something we think about every day.”

On Tuesday, Uzzle's son and daughter announced they are offering a $10,000 cash reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for their mother's murder.

"This is something that has never gone away." Daughter Stephanie Uzzle said on Friday. "It’s never not something in the back of my mind that someone out there murdered a woman and set her home and her body on fire."

Anyone who has information about the case is asked to come forward.

You can contact the Williamson County Sheriff’s Office at 618-997-6541.  People with information can also contact Williamson County Crimestoppers at 1-800-414-8477 (TIPS).
