Update on Sylvester Downs murder


New details on three arrests in the murder of 62-year old Sylvester Downs in Tifton.

Police now tell us they tracked down the getaway driver, Consurilla Mayo last week, and she led them to Justin Dixon and Deonta Rich, who was arrested Thursday

Investigators are still collecting evidence, and hope other witnesses will come forward.   

"We don't anticipate the arrest to be the actually end of information  and evidence and that sort of thing  we will continue to build our case and prepare for prosecution and collect any other evidence that we are able to obtain and any other witnesses that we haven't been able to talk to this far," says Lt. Lee Dunston, investigator for the Tifton Police Department.

Police say the men forced their way into Downs' home on East Sixth street home on March 23rd and shot him during a robbery.
