MACON, GA– Authorities in the mid-state are hoping citizens will help them solve the case of several homicides.

When a crime is first committed an investigation begins immediately, some of which are solved quickly, while others can linger for weeks if not years.

One particular unsolved case is Jesus Mancilla-Velez. The Warner Robins man who vanished one Saturday morning has never been seen or heard from for over six months.

“If Velez is found and there has been no crime, then there is no reward,” Cpl. Greg Thomas Executive Director, Macon Regional Crimestoppers. He added, “If there is a crime then we evaluate the elements of the arrest.”

“Elements of arrest could include the number of people arrested and charges laid,” Thomas affirmed.
