Grady Co. Sheriff and GBI search for murder suspect

September 18, 2006

Cairo-  The Grady County Sheriff's Office wants to question a man about a weekend murder.  Neighbors found Hector Martinez, also known as Hector Ramerez, in this yard Saturday night after returning from church. 

The Sheriff's office believes Martinez and the suspect may have been drinking and got into an argument.  The suspect then pulled a knife. 

"He was stabbed three times, I think the fatal blow came from a stab wound in the heart," said Sheriff Harry Young, Grady County. 

Martinez was also stabbed in the leg. He was found with a leather belt wrapped around his hand. Police have not yet made an arrest in the case.
