Home invasions leave dead, wounded

September 30, 2005

Tifton -- Three migrant workers were murdered in the home invasion, and we are told that several others were injured in a separate attack in theTifton city limits.

The bodies of the three men were found in a mobile home on Ferry Lake Road, just east of the Tifton city limits. We're told the men had been shot.

People have died in at least three mobile home parks. A Hispanic father and son have been found dead at Quality Mobile Home Park. Three others who were perhaps in that home were transported to the hospital. Two went to Phoebe Putney in Albany, and one person was transported to Macon. We understand that the people were beaten with a bat.

At Town and Country Mobile Home Park, two people were killed, and another was transported to the hospital. All the victims are Hispanic males.

We are investigating the report of yet another death in the Good neighbor Mobile Home Park. Law enforcement has not given a report yet on the apparent murders in Tift County. Local law enforcers are on the scene, along with the GBI.

We are trying to confirm reports of similar attacks in Norman Park, Adel, and Moultrie.

Tifton law enforcement are asking anyone when can speak Spanish, might be of Hispanic descent, or who might have any helpful information to come forward. They don't want anyone to be afraid of approaching the police at this time, because they need all the help they can get.
