Jackson Co. Murder Investigation Continues

A reward is now being offered to help solve the murder of a Jackson County man.

The body of 61 year old Richard Meinzer of Alford was discovered last Thursday morning.

A housekeeper at a motel near Interstate 10 found the body in a room on the third floor.

Investigators labeled the case a homicide but refused to disclose the cause of death, even after an autopsy was performed.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is assisting in the case.

Investigators say they have developed a person of interest and the search for that individual has moved out of state.

Crimestoppers is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest. You can call the Madison County Sheriff’s Office at 850-973-4151.
