In Crime Stoppers: A plea to find the killer of an 88-year-old Birmingham man. Herbert Jolley was found in his home Sunday, March 3rd. He was dead.

It's a case that was featured on Crime Stoppers in March, and police still need your help.

"I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper.

Our detectives are looking for the real story on what happened to 88-year-old Herbert Jolley. Here's what we know so far.

It was Sunday, March 3rd. Around 2:15 that afternoon, officers were called to the 200 block of 11th avenue. When police arrived, Jolley was lying across his bed. He was dead. We believe Jolley knew his killer and allowed him or her inside his house.

But we need to know more. It's why we're turning to you for more leads in this case. Had Jolley had any disagreements with anyone? Had his behavior changed before his death?

Whatever you've heard you can call it in to Crime Stoppers. We'll check out the tip, and it if proves to be credible and it leads to an arrest, you qualify for a cash reward.

So make the call. Herbert Jolley did not deserve what happened to him, but he does deserve justice. If you've heard about this case, you owe it to him to make that call.

With Crime Stoppers, I'm Birmingham Police Chief A.C. Roper."
