COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A look of disbelief from Shirley Coleman and members of Michael Fleming's family.

This, after the Columbus Police Department issued two warrants for a man who they believe is connected to two separate murders.

"Oh, my God! Oh, my God! Oh, my God!" Coleman, Micheal's aunt, said. "I didn't know and that's devastating to me, for the other family," she said.

After conducting separate investigations, Columbus Police believe 26-year-old Reginald Jackson is connected to both Fleming and Brandon Scott's murders.

News Leader 9 confirmed Fleming's body was found burned in the trunk of a car destroyed by fire on Harbison Court on July 10.

It took CSI crews weeks to determine the body burned and charred beyond recognition was in fact, Michael Fleming.

"I don't know what they did, why they had to kill him like that," Jack Coleman, Fleming's father, said. "He didn't bother nobody. They're going to pay. Pay for what they did to my son. God, no."

Brandon Scott was shot and killed on Rigdon Road on July 7. Scott and one other person were sent to Midtown Medical center to treat gunshot injuries.

Jackson, the suspect, is described as around 6-feet-tall, 175 pounds with a low haircut. He also has the following tattoos: "Jamal" on his right arm, "MBTC" on his right hand, "Red" on his left arm, "Cross with Only God Knows," and "Boss" on his chest.

He is considered extremely armed and dangerous.

Fleming's family says the violence is overwhelming. "I wouldn't wish this on anybody," Shirley Coleman said. "Not even my worst enemy."

Columbus police are now asking the community to help track down Jackson, as Fleming's family hopes justice prevails, with the help of law enforcement and a higher power.

"I'll allow God to do what He does and does best," Shirley Coleman said, "and I do believe in that justice. And justice is going to come."

If you have information on Jackson's whereabouts, you are asked to call 911.
