Police need help finding murder suspect

March 6, 2006

Albany--Police and prosecutors want your help to find a murder suspect. He's a man they had in jail and then set free.

33-year-old Abe Brown is charged with burglary, armed robbery, aggravated assault, and murder for an attack in December 2002. Four men burst into an apartment on West Road in Albany where a group of men were playing cards.

Travis Harris was shot and killed as he tried to run away. Brown was arrested and charged with murder in April 2004 but those charges were dropped.

He was indicted later and he didn't show up for his arraignment last August.

The other three suspects are in jail and prosecutors hoped to try them later this month.

"We've been looking for him fairly intensively, for the last few weeks and certainly we would like to go ahead and try all the defendants in one setting, so we want to get him in so we can try him as well as the others," says Greg Edwards, chief assistant district attorney.

Authorities are offering a reward for information leading to Brown's capture, but they won't say how much money they'll pay. If you know where to find Brown, Albany police want to hear from you.
