ALBEMARLE, NC (WBTV)- A reward is being offered for new information after deputies say a man's body was found bound to a chair inside a Stanly County home earlier this week.
Stanly County Sheriff Rick Burris told WBTV that CrimeStoppers is offering a reward up to $1,000 for information in the death of 27-year-old Jason Whitney Burleson.
Investigators say Burleson was found bound to a chair inside his home along the 27000 block of Groves Road, just outside of Albemarle, on Sunday afternoon.
"Evidence at the residence indicated that Burleson was the victim of a homicide committed by unknown person or persons," deputies told WBTV.
Sheriff Burris told WBTV that his department is "aggressively investigating" the case and that they are doing a number of interviews.
"It's going to take some time, we have to cover all of our bases," Burris said on Wednesday morning. "But hopefully we'll be able to make an arrest."
