WALB's Most Wanted: Robert Bell


One of the most dangerous suspects we've profiled is a man wanted for the murders of three Albany natives, and investigators believe he could be hiding out here. 

33-year-old Robert Bell had been in Albany September 15th to pick up 34-year-old Angelina Benton. Hours later in Gwinnett County they say he ambushed Benton - fatally shooting her along with her 12-year-old son Joseph McDonald and Benton's 19-year-old godson Raynord Daniel.Benton's boyfriend was shot but survived.

Detectives say they found an assault rifle in an SUV which they say Bell used to carry out the shootings. It believe he took off running. Right now detective don't know where Bell is hiding but he has tied to Chicago and Tennessee, but it's possible he could have made his way back to Albany and has connections to the area.

Benton, who had lived in Albany before moving to metro Atlanta was acting as a Good Samaritan - allowing Bell to live with her and her family. The motive behind the shooting is still unclear.

Bell is a guy that would stand out in a crowd because he six feet tall and weighs 300 pounds. He's considered armed and dangerous.

If you see him call 911 or the Gwinnett County Police Department.
