COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A Fort Benning soldier who finished in the top ten of the Ms. Veteran America competition is the subject of an upcoming documentary.

A camera crew follows Nichole Alred and her friend Heather Worley around as they tour the National Infantry Museum.

Both women finished in the top ten of the Ms. Veteran America Competition, and Nichole is now the subject of a documentary, called "Drop and Give Me Twenty."

Nichole has a story unlike any of the other contestants and it centers on her father.

Alred says, “He was always a mechanic growing up, and so when they asked me what job I wanted to do in the military, I said 'I wanted to be a mechanic, like my daddy.”

Alred’s father died in 2008 in a violent way. Paul Hill was found murdered in his home on Marathon Dr. in Columbus and his killer has still not been found.

The family has been working with police as they try to solve what has become a cold case.

“I just want my father to lay in peace, and I want to be able...the family needs closure,” Alred says.

The documentary may help in solving the case. They finished filming in Columbus, but may return when the case is solved.
