A Green County community works together to help find the killer of Pawnee County Sheriff Dwight Woodrell.

Woodrell was gunned down in October while investigating a burglary call. His family and friends have raised thousands of dollars to give as a reward; in hopes people will come forward with information.

The community of Pawnee increased the reward fund Saturday night by hosting a special basketball game between area law enforcement and coaches.

If you have any information about Woodrell's murder you can leave your tip over the Internet. You can find the website at Pawnee County Sheriff. You can leave a secret password, that way if your tip leads to an arrest, they can get you the reward money.
