Search still on for suspected triple murderer

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

We continue to follow the search for a suspected triple murderer with ties to Albany.     

Police in Gwinnett County say 33-year old Robert Bell killed three people who recently moved there from Albany.     

Angelina Benton, her son Joseph McDonald, and godson Raynard Daniels were gunned down at her Snellville home September 15th.     

Investigators said then they thought Bell could be hiding out in Albany. Police here are watching out for him and following up on tips.

"We are monitoring our crime stoppers line in the event we get any tips...we heard he might be in the area...we got a couple of tips initially...that's why we've been monitoring our tip line in the event we get any information," said Phyllis Banks, Albany Police Department. There is a $5,000 reward in the case. 

If you have any information that could help police track down Robert Bell, call crime stoppers at 436 tips.
