COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - The mother of a homicide victim wants answers following her son’s death, and she’s willing to pay to get them.

Anyone with more information is encouraged to contact the Columbus Police Department, or a tip line set up by April Dobbins. Jaylan Dobbins is Muscogee County’s ninth homicide of the year.

April Dobbins’ tip line number is 334-553-6970.
