Recently, someone called Guthrie Police with information about the case, but investigators say the call was disconnected before the information could be obtained. The caller had a Fort Smith, Arkansas, area code.

Investigators are urging the person to call back, but this time the caller should contact the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) at 1-800-522-8017.

The OSBI is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who killed Byrd.
