Do cash rewards work?

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Good afternoon from the desk of Janet Hall. Here are the stories we're working on for WBRC FOX6 News this evening:

Four young men including three University of Alabama students are accused of raping a woman in Tuscaloosa. The 23-year-old woman was found unresponsive in an apartment Monday morning. Witnesses say she knowingly drank an alcoholic beverage containing Xanax with friends Sunday. We'll have the latest on the investigation at 5:00.

Do rewards work?

A $25,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the capture of the killer who gunned down a man in a Home Depot parking lot on Highway 280. We'll talk to authorities about how well these types of rewards work in bringing forth more leads.
