ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Still no charges in the murder of a man found floating in the Flint River and tonight Dougherty County Police worry that this case will go unsolved without your help.

Fifty-two year old Willie Haggines was found floating in the Flint, South of Radium Golf Course, ten days ago. He had been slashed and stabbed and thrown into the water. Investigators say they've struggled to find a reason why anyone would kill Haggines and without a crime scene, their case has hit a dead end.

"We have no crime scene, no witnesses, and we have no physical evidence, and it's extremely difficult. The general rule of thumb is the longer you go after a homicide after it takes place the more difficult they are," said Dougherty County Police Chief Don Cheek.

Police are asking anyone who may have seen or heard anything about Haggines death even if they think it's minor, to contact Dougherty County or Albany Police. They can also make an anonymous tip to Crimestoppers at 436-TIPS. Haggines suffered multiple stab and slash wounds.
