Murder investigators seek info about SUV

By Rob Moore Reporter
TOCCOA - Toccoa Police Department and the GBI are asking the public's help in identifying a sport-utility vehicle that is believed to be related to their murder investigation.

"We are seeking any information on a newer model small grey or metallic blue Ford SUV," said Police Chief Tim Jarrell on Thursday.

Montavious Xavier Flentall, 28, of Pageland Drive in Toccoa was found dead on Pageland Drive just after 8 a.m. Tuesday. His death has been ruled a homicide, though details of the death have not been released.

"Anyone who knows this vehicle or is able to get a tag number is asked to call Toccoa Police Department's tip line at (706) 282-3237," Jarrell said.

Jarrell said authorities believe this is an isolated incident and that there's no reason to believe the public is in danger.

Periodic updates will be issued, Jarrell said.
