Thomasville-- Thousands of unused bags of ice FEMA ordered after Katrina were set outside to melt this morning in the south Georgia heat.
Those bags were stored at Americold in Thomasville, but hundreds of thousands more bags had the same fate at twenty-one other sites around the country.
The reason for the disposal? FEMA says after two years of storage, the ice is potentially unfit for human consumption.
A person of interest in connection to the Dollar General homicide investigation was picked up for questioning. Police are still searching for one other person for questioning.
One man is being called a hero by the Albany Police Department and others for his actions trying to put a stop to an armed robbery Friday.
Bobby Lee Beck had sexual intercourse with a minor relative less than 16 years of age.
