Crime Stoppers offering $1,000 reward to solve Nederland homicide

Mid-County investigators are working to solve the homicide of a Nederland man and they hope doorbell camera video showing two men near the victim's home will help.

Michael Legg was found dead in his home during the morning of Wednesday, May 9.

It's Nederland's first murder in 5 years.

A motion-activated camera notified a Nederland resident someone was outside of her home.

Police responded to the suspicious activity and noticed the front and back doors to Legg's home were open.

Investigators found his body inside. Autopsy results show he was beaten to death, according to J.P. Tom Gillam III.

If you have any information about the homicide, call Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers at 833-TIPS.

Operators won't ask for your name and you could earn a cash reward of up to $1,000.
