RHINELANDER, Wis. (WSAW) - The Oneida County Sheriff’s Department has announced a $20,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Christopher Anderson. Thursday, the department set up a Venmo account to make donating to the fund easier. The user name is: @Hannah-Reward-2021

Investigators say Anderson, 30, shot and killed his child’s mother. The body of Hannah Miller, 26, was found near River Bend Road and Highway 8 around 11 a.m. on June 30.

A warrant has been issued for Anderson’s arrest. Two vehicles authorities thought Anderson may have been driving were located unoccupied on July 5 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Prosecutors have already charged another man for having prior knowledge of Anderson’s plan to kill Miller.

Anderson has a tattoo of an owl on his neck and chest and tattoos on each hand. The tattoo on the top of his right hand says G.M.F.B. The one on his left hand is a Celtic skull with a halo.

Oneida County Sheriff Department Captain Terri Hook said they are asking the community to contribute to the fund.

“The Sheriff’s Office will be starting the fund with $20,000. The Rhinelander Police Department is pledging $5000. I am asking the community to pass the hat and help us get the reward large enough that someone will turn Anderson into the authorities. We have a goal of raising at least $100,000,” Hook said.

A message on its Facebook page stated the account has been set up so that donations will remain anonymous to the public. If funds are not needed, they will be returned to those who contributed. Donations can also be sent to the Oneida County Sheriff’s Office, Attention: Hannah Miller Fund, 2000 E. Winnebago Street, Rhinelander, WI 54501. Include your name and contact information with the donation.
