VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - The family of a slain Valdosta man are asking the community for help.
The family of 43 year-old Milton Jones gathered Friday at the same park where he was killed five days ago.
The father of four was found in Payton Park Sunday night with multiple gunshot and knife wounds. He died Monday morning.
They say his death has been overwhelming and caused tension in the family.
Tension that will only go away once his killers are caught.
"He has kids. Three boys and one little girl that's nine months old. His little boy, that's ten is taking it hard and we all are. Anybody that's out there, if you saw something or know something come forward and help us get the people who did this to my brother behind bars," says Annette Jones-Hargett.
Police say there is a reward for any information that will lead to the arrest of his killers.
They are asking the community to call their crime tip line.
That number is 229-293-3091.
