Family offers reward for Clark County cold case

Family members are offering a $50,000 reward for information regarding the 2001 death of a 37-year-old Marshfield man.

According to the Clark County Sheriff's Department, the family of James Southworth are now offering the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for his death. Southworth was hunting alone in the Township of Lynn, South East of Chili, Wisconsin on November 23. Southworth's body was found early the next day. After investigation, investigators determined that Southworth died from two gunshot wounds to his back.

The Clark County Sheriff's Department is searching for a vehicle that was parked on Fairhaven Avenue, near the location of Southworth's body, from 8 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. on November 23. 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. Although a model was not known it has been described as being a late 80's Nissan or Chevy S-10 with a topper that was open.

The Clark County Sheriff's Department is also trying to locate three Asian males. The men were seen standing around the truck at noon on November 23. Two of the three men were not wearing blaze orange. The three men could be possible witnesses to this case.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Clark County Sheriff's Department at 1-800-743-2420 or 715-743-3157.
