Valdosta Police Seeking Answers in Homicide

"It's just senseless what they did to him".

It's been more than 24 hours since George Quezergue's death and friends still can't believe he's gone.

"He never gave anybody trouble so whoever did this to him couldn't have been from around here because George was not a person to get in to trouble."

His friends on scene Monday didn't want to be identified. Valdosta Police say just before 9:30 Saturday night Quezergue was shot multiple times in an alley on East Park Avenue between two stores in the Forrest Park center.

Police say they have a person of interest and a motive.

"Am I hopeful? Absolutely. Am I guaranteeing we'll solve this case? I can never do that. But I am hopeful we'll be able to solve this case and relatively soon," said Commander Brian Childress.

Childress says because of the lack of witnesses there at the time its made the case hard to work but says now residents are speaking up.

"I think it sends a message to our community that they're not going to tolerate this," said Childress.

And Childress says neither will the police department.

Anyone with information on this case can call the Valdosta Police Departments tip line at (229) 293-3091.

    I hope ya'll can do a better job than the Remerton Police Dept. did on the Jake Elkins MURDER!!! They didn't do any DNA testing on any of his belongings and there wasn't even any blood drawn!!!! His clothes went with Remerton Police and he was sent to the crime lab with someone elses shorts and those too were not DNA'd!!!! That just seems like common sense to me!
