$50,000 REWARD OFFERED FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO AN ARREST AND CONVICTION FOR THE MURDER OF MARC THOMPSON

On September 3rd, 2014, Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) deputies were dispatched to the area of Oroville-Quincy Highway and Mountain House Circle in Brush Creek, Butte County, California. Dispatch radioed that a vehicle was engulfed in flames with fire personnel on scene. Dispatch radioed the same vehicle was occupied by a deceased individual.

Detectives responded and determined that 25-year-old Marc Thompson was fatally shot. Detectives initiated a homicide investigation. Over the past several years, detectives have actively and zealously investigated this case, however it has remained unsolved.
In 2021, BCSO requested Governor Gavin Newsom’s Office issue a reward through the Governor’s Reward program to encourage those with pertinent information to come forward. After reviewing the circumstances of the case, Governor Newsom’s Office issued a $50,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction for the murder of Marc Thompson.
The Sheriff’s Office is committed to solving this case. We very much want to bring closure to Marc’s family and friends and see to it that the person(s) responsible for Marc’s murder are held accountable. Our hearts go out to Marc’s family and we are hopeful that this reward will renew public interest in the case and ultimately result in justice for Marc.
BCSO encourages those with pertinent information to come forward. Anyone with information is requested to contact Sergeant Patrick McNelis or Detective Tristian Harper at 530-538-7671.
