GEENVILLE — The Meriwether County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying two people of interest in a murder investigation.

The sheriff’s office has released sketches of the two men sought in connection to the murder case.

Both men are described as black males in their mid- to late 20s. One is described as having a dark complexion, about 5-foot-6 with a stocky build, some facial hair with goatee, a diamond stud earring in left ear and possibly right ear, and very short, close-cut hair.

The other man is described as having a medium complexion, about 6 feet tall with a slender build, hair in medium to long dreads with a thin mustache and goatee.

Officials are asking anyone with information on the identity of the two men to call the Meriwether County Sheriff’s Office at 706-672-4489 or 706-672-6647. Callers can remain anonymous.

Deputies responded to the fatal shooting in the 100 block of Allie Road in Greenville about 10 a.m. Dec. 19. They found John Joseph Lamey, 45, with a California address, dead at the scene and another man shot nonfatally in the abdomen, sheriff’s officials reported.

Two suspects turned themselves in on Dec. 20 and are charged with murder and aggravated assault, but Sheriff Chuck Smith said in a press release issued the next day that deputies still were seeking more people in connection to the murder.
