Police canvass SW Atlanta for clues in 4 unsolved homicides

Posted: Updated:

Tiffany Jones and her mother have a picture of her brother, Randy Menefee, on their sweatshirts.

They helped Atlanta police canvass the Allen Temple Court Apartments on Wednesday. That's where someone killed Menefee in January.

"He wasn't just someone on the streets. He was a father, a brother, a son and an uncle," said Jones. "He was very important, for him to just be gunned down and murdered the way he was, something has to be done about it."

In addition to Menefee's case, Atlanta police are investigating three other unsolved murders that happened within a four-mile radius of Martin Luther King Junior Drive since January.

"We're here to put all individuals responsible for these violent acts in jail," said APD Homicide Capt. Paul Guerrucci.

About 50 officers went door to door through the four communities where the murders happened. Officers on horseback also helped out.

"They are something beautiful to look at so when people see that and their curiosity is peaked, they come out and want to talk," said Guerrucci. "The officers will then ask them if they know something about these homicides."

Jones said detectives have made some arrests in her brother's case, but they believe others were involved.

Her family is pleased to take part in the canvass.

"Nothing that we're doing today or any other day will bring him back," said Jones. "Just knowing that he's gone but he's not forgotten. He's got all these strangers, people who never met him out trying to seek justice for him."
