Reward of up to $10,000 for Sawmill murders

PHOENIX – A reward of up to $10,000 is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for murder of two brothers in Sawmill, Arizona.

The FBI Phoenix Field Office, Apache County Sheriff’s Office, and Navajo Department of Criminal Investigations are seeking information about the March 21, 2020, murder of Matthew and Phillip Reagan.

“Our purpose is to ensure we bring those responsible to justice,” he said, “and to at least bring closure and healing to the loved ones of both Matthew and Philip Reagan.”
