VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Police are investigating a murder in Valdosta and need your help to find the killer.

43-year-old Milton Jones was found lying in a pool of his own blood in Payton Park Sunday night.

He was transported to South Georgia Medical Center where he died from his injuries Monday morning.

Investigators say he had numerous wounds all over his body.

An autopsy will be performed Tuesday to find out exactly how he died.
