| April 11, 2017

BROOKS Co. – On April 7, 2017, The GBI Thomasville Field Office was contacted and requested by Brooks County Sheriff Mike Dewey to initiate an investigation regarding a murder that took place at 1789 Dewberry Short Road in Brooks County, Georgia.

Brooks County Deputies were called to the scene where Martin Solis was discovered deceased inside his residence. During the investigation, it was learned Solis had two other roommates who were now missing. Agents conducted interviews and established witnesses that led to information being obtained regarding the murder of Solis. Agents processed the crime scene for evidence and also collected evidence in the general and surrounding areas outside the main scene.

Agents developed information of a fight between the men the previous night and an incident at a local Quitman business that took place. Agents were assisted with information from the Quitman Police Department that aided in the continuing investigation. Photographs were obtained and a “BOLO” was issued in the Brooks and Lowndes County areas where Agents believed the two roommates to possibly still be together hiding out. Valdosta Police and the Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office joined the GBI and Brooks County Sheriff’s Office in attempting to locate the men identified as Jaime Lopez Martinez and Luis Felipe Mollinedo Lopez.

Saturday afternoon, Agents received information that led them to believe the two men were in the Lowndes County area possibly around I-75 and the Madison Highway. Agents and Lowndes County Sheriff’s Deputies conducted surveillance and arrested three individuals which included the two roommates at about 7:45 p.m. in the parking lot of the Pilot Truck Stop on Madison Highway. The third individual arrested was identified as Andres Mollinedo Lopez who drove from Virginia to pick the other two men up.
