The family of a murdered Greenville teenager wants to close a bank account holding thousands of dollars of reward money to find the girl's killer.
The family of 16-year-old Alicia Moore told FOX 4 they want to close the $25,000 account for "personal reasons," but did not elaborate.
According to the Greenville Herald-Banner, an aunt claimed that some in the community exploited the reward fund to advertise their businesses.
Moore was last seen getting off her school bus on Nov. 2. A highway crew found her body four days later.
Police and two different sheriff's departments are continuing the investigation, with help from the Texas Rangers and the FBI.
A few days after Moore's body was found, a McKinney businessman donated $15,000 for information leading to the arrest of a suspect. Dozens of others donated as well, bringing the fund to some $25,000.
It's not clear if a second account for a family memorial fund will be closed as well.
