State officials are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in a former Fremont mayor’s June 16 killing.

Gov. Roy Cooper announced the reward Tuesday afternoon. To date, no arrests have been made in the homicide of 65-year-old Floyd Anthony “Andy” Evans, a Fremont man who previously served as the town’s mayor.

Evans’ body was found in the garage of a home at 129 Evans Farm Road just outside Fremont near Interstate 95 on the afternoon of June 16. Deputies described the home as one of Evans’ properties.

State officials say he died of a gunshot wound to the head.

The N.C. State Bureau of Investigation is assisting Wayne County sheriff’s deputies in the case because Evans is a former elected official.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 919-705-1862, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office at 919-731-1480, Goldsboro-Wayne County Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255 or by text to 919-222-4230, or the State Bureau of Investigation at 919-662-4500.
