Reward Offered in Ottawa County Home Invasion


The family of Sam Sanders, 64, is offering a reward of up to $5,000.00 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for his murder.  The family’s rural Ottawa County home was invaded by at least two masked gunmen in the early morning hours of March 24, 2009.  Sanders was shot and killed by the intruders and other family members inside the home were assaulted by them.  Investigators believe robbery was likely the motive.

If you have any information about this crime, please call either the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office at (918) 542-2806 or the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
