PANOLA CO, MS (WMC) - For some people in Courtland, Mississippi, the brutal death of 19-year-old Jessica Chambers is unthinkable.
"No human being deserves to be treated that way," said Courtland resident Larry Flowers.
Yalobusha County Crime Stoppers added $1,000 to the reward, making the total sum $54,000 for information leading to a conviction.
Panola County officials say no credible information has been offered up.
At least one person questioned by investigators has left the small town.
Store clerk Ali Alsanai, who worked at the M&M gas station the night of the murder, has moved. His stepfather said he left town after he received dozens of death threats.
On Alsanai's Facebook page, he replies to comments about him leaving saying, "I will be back soon."
Alsanai was cleared and is not considered a person of interest in the case.
But while authorities continue to work towards an arrest, Courtland waits for justice.
"I hope they get justice," said Flowers. "The family needs to rest."
