On May 9, 2014 The US Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force and Investigators with the Dale County Sheriff’s Office arrested Frederick Bernard Hightower and charged him with Capital Murder in the 2005 death of Billy Ray Jackson. Since 2005 Investigators with the Sheriff’s Office and other local and state agencies have worked diligently to find witnesses and gather information that would lead to the arrest of Jackson’s killer. Due to this being an ongoing investigation limited information will be released but based on the evidence and information we have obtained we believe the motive behind the murder was robbery. Hightower is being held at the Dale County Jail under no bond at this time.
