It's been more than seven months since a 26-year-old Auburn man was found dead in his apartment, and authorities have not yet been able to deliver justice in his death.

Auburn police on Thursday announced they are offering a reward for information that leads to an arrest of the suspect or suspects in the slaying of Herman Cornelius "Ce-Ce" Lane. A reward amount has not been set, and authorities say that amount will depend on the quality of the information provided.

Lane was found dead inside his apartment at a complex on 420 South Dean Road. A friend of Lane's went to check on him about 7:20 p.m. that Saturday because Lane was not answering his phone.

The friend went to the apartment, where he found Lane dead from an apparent gunshot wound. Lane was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:45 p.m. and his body was taken to the Alabama Dept. of Forensic Sciences in Montgomery to undergo an autopsy.

Lane had last been seen alive about 3 p.m. that day. Investigators on Thursday said they have determined that Lane occasionally associated with people he met through social media sites.

Auburn Police are asking anyone with information about his death, habits, associations, or activity prior to March 4th, to contact the Auburn Police Division Investigative Section at 334-501-3140 or the Secret Witness Line at 334-246-1391.
