ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A man severely beaten last week died Sunday morning in the hospital.

At least one of the people believed to have attacked him is still wanted, and police hope you have seen him.

Mitchell Cullen was wanted on aggravated assault charges, but that charge has now been upgraded to murder.

Police said he was one of two men that beat James Winchester on West Gordon Avenue last Sunday.

Detectives suspect Winchester hit the ground, or was struck by an unknown object. 

If you know Mitchell Cullen's whereabouts, call 911 or Albany Police. You can also Call Crimestoppers at 436-TIPS.

Anyone who helps Cullen hide or get away can be prosecuted, the district attorney says.
