BRUNSWICK, Ga. (AP) - Glynn County may increase the reward being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the death of one of its commissioners.

Tom Sublett's body was found early Tuesday in the Frederica River near St. Simons Island after he failed to return home from an evening poker game with friends. An autopsy determined Sublett was shot in his head before drowning, but the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has not ruled his death a homicide.

The Glynn County Police Department is offering $25,000 for information in the case. Glynn County Commission Chairman Richard Strickland says commissioners will decide Thursday night whether to offer additional money.

Sublett was finishing his first and only term on the county's board of commissioners after deciding not to seek re-election. He was 52.
