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 from
Griffin, GA., and learned that Jones and her boyfriend (Tiller) had been involved in
a shooting there on 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 of 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.
