OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is offering up to $5,000 reward for information in the murder of a Cordell woman on July 20.

Tammi Thomas, 36, was shot inside her home and her 14-year- old son was wounded. Although the OSBI special agents and the Washita County Sheriff’s investigators have followed “dozens” of leads, a suspect has not been identified as of yet.

Officials with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said the Washita County Sheriff’s Office received an emergency call at around 1 p.m. on July 20 about a shooting and a home invasion. The teenage victim was seriously wounded, but has since been released from an area hospital.

Last week, OSBI released information about the suspect having a blunt force trauma injury to his right forearm. If anyone has information that can help lead to the man who committed this murder, please call the OSBI hotline at 1-800- 522-8017.
