Costa Rican offers reward in Shannon Martin case A local in Golfito, Costa Rica, is offering a $6,000 reward for tips that might lead authorities to Kansas University student Shannon Martin’s killer. Fliers advertising the reward money are circulating in the small, Pacific Coast town where Martin, shown above, was killed in May while completing biological research, said Oscar Quiros, director of KU’s study abroad program in Golfito. Quiros said he had talked to the man offering the reward money but couldn’t remember his name. “Everybody knows him,” Quiros said. “He’s a local person. He’s just concerned and worried.” The fliers have appeared in a variety of Golfito establishments, Quiros said. They advertise a reward of 2 million colones about $6,000 U.S. for information that helps locate the culprit in Martin’s homicide. At the bottom of the fliers are the initials JDM and a post office box number where tips are supposed to be sent, La Nacion, a San Jose daily newspaper, reported Monday. __________ Theater: Seem-To-Be Players schedule acting auditions Auditions for the Lawrence-based Seem-To-Be Players Children’s Theatre, a company of adult performers who tour nationally, will be at 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. Thursday at the Coterie Theatre in Crown Center, 2450 Grand Blvd., Kansas City, Mo.

Sompong Phomsouvanh, 24, Kansas City, Kan., was charged Monday in Douglas County District Court with felony counts of kidnapping, aggravated assault, obstruction of official duty and attempting to elude law enforcement, as well as a misdemeanor count of reckless driving. Monday, Assistant Douglas County Dist. Atty. Brad Burke asked a judge to set Phomsouvanh’s bail at $200,000. “The defendant told officers he thought about killing the victim,” Burke said. “He later made statements that he thought about killing the victim and himself.” Judge Peggy Kittel set bail at $150,000 and appointed defense attorney Jim Rumsey to the case. The next hearing is 2 p.m. Wednesday. __________ Gasoline costs: Pump patrol finds low prices The Journal-World has found a gasoline price as low as $1.249 per gallon at Total and Conoco in North Lawrence.
