BRUNSWICK, Ga. — Police in coastal Georgia are offering a $10,000 reward for tips that lead to the killer of a Florida man who was shot while changing a flat tire near Interstate 95.

Glynn County police say 49-year-old Richard Hollis was killed early in the morning on Sept. 10 after he pulled off the interstate near the port city of Brunswick. Passing motorists who spotted his body called police.

The Florida Times-Union reports (http://bit.ly/S58H8N ) police are seeking information on a red or maroon sedan seen leaving the area where Hollis’ car was parked.

Hollis lived in Jacksonville, Fla., and had recently retired from his job as an executive for Bubba Burgers. His wife, Rhonda Hollis, says her husband’s wallet was missing when police found him.
