LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) -

In 2016, Ronnie Horaney, a well-known business owner in Longview, was found dead. Tuesday, a reward for information in the case was increased by $50,000.

Gregg County Crimestoppers announced the increase, from $20,000 to $70,000, in a news release. The organization says the increase is due to funds provided by Horaney's wife and children "for the sole purpose of bringing closure in this case for their family."

Horaney, the owner of Horaney's Feed Store, was fatally shot.
