Texas authorities are seeking fresh leads in the 1991 death of a woman whose case is seen as an inspiration for the Academy Award-winning film "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri."
The Texas Department of Public Safety said in a release Tuesday that it's raised to $6,000 the reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible for the death of 34-year-old Kathy Page.
After her death Page's father, James Fulton, rented billboards accusing Vidor police of failing to properly investigate the killing.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The Dallas Morning News reports that in 2000, a civil jury found Page's estranged husband, Steve Page, liable in a wrongful-death suit and awarded her family $150,000.
British-Irish director Martin McDonaugh has said the film was inspired by billboards he saw during U.S. travels decades ago, but hasn't specified exactly where.
