Reward increased in 2021 Butler County double homicide case

April 9, 2022 GMT

GREENVILLE, Ala. (AP) — The reward has been increased in an effort to solve two 2021 murders in Alabama’s Butler County.

The bodies of Devante Ladalvin Section and Isiah Ryhem Maxwell, both 28, were found in a burned vehicle in a field on June 2. Investigators determined the two Conecuh County men had been murdered. Both were last seen alive the night before the vehicle was found.

No arrests have been made in the case. Authorities hope the increased reward of $12,500 will help bring in tips, WSFA-TV reported.

Central Alabama CrimeStoppers was already offering $2,500 to be paid within 30 days of an arrest. Gov. Kay Ivey signed a proclamation from the state for an additional $10,000 on March 29.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Butler County Sheriff’s Office or CrimeStoppers’ 24-hour tip line.
