Albany Police continue investigation into Saturday murder

May 1, 2007

Albany -- Still no arrests by Albany Police in a weekend murder on the East side. 63 year old George Ponder was killed at his Shirley Avenue home Saturday afternoon.

Ponder, who used a wheelchair, was found dead in his living room floor. His throat had been slashed and it appeared his killer tried to start a fire to perhaps cover his tracks.

Chief James Younger told City Commissioners Tuesday morning that they have no specific suspects in the murder, but said his Investigators are interviewing several people.

Ponders' family will help Police go through his financial records for any clues to his killer.
