ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Police say a murder investigation has gone cold. They're asking for your help to figure out who shot and killed 25-year-old Deandre Williams August 28th at the Sand Trap Club and lounge.

Police handed over a big check to Crime Stoppers. The Williams family is offering $5,000 to anyone who has even the smallest tip leading to an arrest.

"That's incredible," said Jamie Knight, Crime Stoppers Treasurer. "The Albany Crime Stoppers is honored to partner with the Williams family. We have all the processes in place already. We are privileged to work with the family to get this suspect arrested."

Investigator Arthur Tyler says the Robbery Homicide unit has interviewed several people but still doesn't know who killed Deandre Williams in the side parking lot of the Sand Trap 3:00 a.m. Sunday August 28th.

"We are seeking help from the public," said Tyler. "We are actively seeking information anyone could possibly have."

Even though a surveillance camera is set up at the front door of the Sand Trap, owner Gilbert Udoto, who didn't want to speak on TV says it does not work. He says on a busy night, the club has six security staff along with two APD officers.

"We always try to step up patrols at any night club, not just because of this incident," said Tyler.

The family and investigators hope this incentive will bring more leads to police and justice for Deandre Williams.

Anyone with information that might help investigators should call Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS (8477). You can remain anonymous.
