Investigators of the Valley Police Department have obtained warrants and
have made an arrest in connection with the July 17th murder of Antavious Lawenton
Sharpe. Warrants have been obtained for Robyn Yvonne Jones (18 of Lagrange,
GA.) , Vincent Ray Tiller (21 of Grantville, GA.), and Jacob Christian Moedl, (19 of
Notasulga, AL). Jones and Tiller were arrested on July 24th and are currently in
custody in Lafayette Parish, LA., pending extradition back to Alabama. Moedl was
arrested in Notasulga on July 26th and is currently in the Chambers County Detention Facility.
Witnesses positively identified Jones as the driver of the vehicle involved in
the shooting as well as reporting that there was a white or light skinned male in the
front passenger seat and a black male in the rear seat. When the warrant on Jones
was entered into NCIC Valley Investigators were contacted by detectives in Griffin,
GA., and learned that Jones and her boyfriend (Tiller) had been involved in a
shooting there July 10th. The US Marshall’s Fugitive Recovery Task Force was
contacted for assistance in locating Jones and Tiller. The Marshall’s were able to
track them to Louisiana where they, along with members of the Lafayette Parish
Sheriff’s Office, were able to arrest them at a residence in Carencro, LA.
Valley Investigators went to Louisiana to interview them. They both
admitted that they had set up a deal with Sharpe to buy marijuana with the
intention or robbing him and that the white male named Jacob had shot him. Based
on this information, Investigators were able to locate Moedl and question him.
Moedle admitted to being in the vehicle at the time of the shooting but stated that
Tiller had pulled the trigger.
This case is still under investigation.
