HASKELL COUNTY, TX (KAUZ) -

The reward for information, that would help solve the 1988 murder of a Haskell County child, has increased. 

The Texas Department of Public Safety has increased the reward to $6,000 for information leading to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for the death of Courtney Clayton.

On September 12, 1988, 7-year-old Clayton was abducted from near her home in Stamford. She was last seen as she walked to a small store, about a block from her home, to buy a drink. 

Her remains were not found until six months after her disappearance by hunters in Shackelford County 50 miles away. 

DPS officials said Clayton was identified by the hair from a hairbrush her parents had kept. 

To be eligible for the cash reward, tipsters have to provide information to authorities by calling the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477) and all tips are anonymous.
