Franklin County Sheriff's Office Holds Pamela Kinney Benefit

Posted: Updated:

A Franklin County family is still hoping for answers in the murder of their daughter. The sheriff's office says it's doing everything it can to find those answers for the family.

The department is currently offering $20,000 for information which leads to the arrest and conviction of the person who killed Pamela Kinney in late 2005.

"We're getting back on top of it, but it was, I guess you would say a cold case, that we're trying to get back on top of and raise the awareness in the public," said Sheriff Mike Mock.

Authorities suspect Kinney was murdered at a beach house on St. George Island.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Franklin County Sheriff's Department have been working for years to solve this case. They have several details but need the public's help.

Sheriff Mike Mock hopes adding to the reward will draw some interest in helping. The sheriff's office raised awareness and money with a benefit. For a $6 donation, people got a BBQ lunch with grilled chicken, baked beans, and coleslaw. The public kept the cooks busy Friday afternoon.

"Anytime you have a crime of this magnitude, it is definitely shocking, and the public is concerned with it. The family members of Pamela Kinney, her mother, her family members, they want to see justice. They feel that she deserves that and so do we," said Sheriff Mock.

The sheriff's office sold all of the food, which made about 300 lunches. Sheriff Mock says the department plans to hold more BBQ's in the future.
