Albany -- The investigation into the murder of a well known Albany man continues today. Police have questioned several people, but have not made any arrests.
Forty-three-year-old Jack Camp, Deputy Commander of Albany's Search and Rescue team, was found shot in the head early yesterday morning after checking out a suspicious person at the apartment complex where he lived.
Albany Police spent Thursday questioning people who may have information about the shooting, but they haven't made any arrests.
The only man known to have witnessed the killer on the night of Camp's murder is Ronnie Clark, who lives across the street from where the shooting took place. According to incident reports, when Clark heard the gunshot he looked out the window and saw "A shadow that appeared to be a male subject" running across the ball field toward Dougherty High School.
A camera at the school caught the killer on tape. Police told us they were working to enhance that video and would release it so we could show it to you, but they still haven't and won't give us a time line as to when that will be.
It was Jack Camp's desire to protect others that ultimately led to his own death. He was a courtesy officer at Regency Club Apartments, where he also lived. When other people who lived there saw something suspicious, they called Camp. That's what happened early yesterday morning.
He confronted a person, apparently a man and called police for help. Before they arrived, he was killed.
Yesterday Police Chief James Younger and City Manager Al Lott told WALB News 10 that violent crimes were down 40% in January and February from this time last year.
Banks Funeral Home of Sylvester is handling arrangements for Jack Camp's Funeral.
Visitation will take place Saturday from 6-8PM at the Funeral Home.
Services are Sunday at 2:00 PM at Liberty Hill Baptist Church, with internment to follow at Liberty Hill Cemetery.
Directions to the church:
When you enter Worth County on Highway 133 (from Albany), Liberty Hill Baptist Church is about seven miles down and to the left, at 720 Liberty Hill Road, in Worth County.
