    It's strange the valdosta police dept has not found out who or what happen to my brother. His name was Jeffery Parker, they found him dead an nothing has been done to solve this crime. I went to the place where they found him an found a necklace, an they said it was nothing to do with it. 2nd I found long hair on some bushes ,an the chief came an said it was nothing. It is not what you know it's who you know.

      I am very sorry for your loss. Sometimes these L.E.A.'s just do not try to catch the bad guys. It's sad but it's true. I am sure that your brother Jeffery was a great person. These locals don't see it that way. If they can close a case, (even with it not closed) they will not spend one more thin dime on it. I am sorry for your loss, and wish you some sort of comfort in the future.
