Family Offers Reward In 2001 Hunter Death

Posted Saturday, September 22, 2012 --- 5:20 a.m.

NEILLSVILLE, Wis. (AP) — The family of a hunter shot and killed in Clark County 11 years ago is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

Relatives of James Southworth are hoping the $50,000 reward will lead to a new break in the case.

The 37-year-old Southworth was shot in the back while hunting alone near Chili on Nov. 23, 2001.

Sheriff's officials are looking for a pickup that was parked near the spot where Southworth's body was found. The truck was described by witnesses as being silver, gray or off-white with a possible light tan, beige or off-white stripe along the side.

WAOW-TV ( says investigators want to interview three men who were seen standing around the truck about noon on the day Southworth was killed.
