Albany police looking for help identifying Westbrook suspect
It's been two weeks since the body of Anthony Westbrook, 52, was found in a wooded area off Westtown Road.
Now Albany police investigators are releasing new information about the case.
"Mr.. Anthony Westbrook, who was a veteran of war, was murdered on or before April 4th here in Albany Georgia," says Shemika Foster, a Detective for the Albany Police Department.
She says calls and tips have been flooding in about the case from people wanting to help solve the murder, but officers are still not as far as they would like to be.
So they are asking for the public's assistance in identifying a suspect.
Their hope is that releasing surveillance pictures from an SB & T Bank ATM may lead to the name and whereabouts of the masked person caught trying to withdraw money from Westbrook's bank account.
"The vehicle in the video appears to be that of the victim. We also will confirm that the credit card also belongs to the victim," says Phyllis Banks, the Public Information Officer for the Albany Police Department.
The gold vehicle has since been recovered by authorities.
Banks says investigators don't know whether or not the suspect is male or female, but the picture may help identify them. They're urging the public to look closely and try to spot anything that may be recognizable.
"Someone may have heard information that people in the community are discussing . That's why we're asking them to look at the face, the eyes, the nose, the mouth to find anything that could help in this case," says Shemika Foster.
Police are not releasing the date and time these photos were taken due to the ongoing investigation.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact Shemika Foster with the Albany Police Department at (229) 878-3180 or Crime Stoppers (229) 436-TIPS.
