Colquitt County, GA (WALB) – A newspaper delivery woman made a gruesome discovery on her route when she nearly hit a man lying dead in the middle of a busy road. Now investigators need your help to find his killer.
36-year old Manuel Rodriguez was stabbed several times. He was found around 4:30 Saturday morning in Smith Road in Colquitt County.
Investigators from the Colquitt County Sheriff's Officer were beating the bushes again today talking with family and friends to found out how an argument escalated into a knife fight in what most describe as a quiet neighborhood.
Mary Sutter and her granddaughter were in their front yard picking up pecans today, just two days earlier they were awakened by patrol car lights. "We don't really it's not a bad neighborhood, we don't have that problem, you know like that, we ain't never had that kind of problem."
Investigators say a newspaper delivery person thought it was an animal's body but when her headlights hit Manuel Rodriguez's body she stopped cold.
"Her lights flashed on it; she could tell it was a human being," said Captain Hal Suber of the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office. "She notified 911, our deputies responded and found a Hispanic male laying in the middle of the road."
Initially investigators thought Rodriguez had been hit, but soon discovered several knife wounds and cuts and a blood trail.
"There was a blood trail leading from a house so we sort of think an altercation took place in the house and he walked out into the road probably fell over dead," Suber said.
Several candles stand as a vigil and neighbors hope investigators will quickly find who's responsible. So their neighborhood will feel safe again.
Investigators fear whoever is responsible for the murder may run, potentially out of the country, so they've called in the GBI to assist with the investigators and late this afternoon said they were following strong leads in the case.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Colquitt County Sheriff's office.
