On June 8th, 2017, posted in: News by

Robert Letroy Howard has been charged with the murder of Naomi Jones. This announcement was made on Thursday June 8 at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office by Sheriff David Morgan. Utilizing both traditional and technical investigative techniques the ECSO gathered the evidence needed to identify and charge Howard who is a registered sex offender in Alabama. The FBI and FDLE along with the State Attorney office assisted in this matter. Among the evidence collected was video of a vehicle linked to Howard at the scene where her body was placed at Eightmile Creek. Assistant State Attorney Greg Marcille said that the charge will be capital murder and that given the information known at present it is likely that the death penalty will be sought in this case.

In a press conference at the Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday June 7th at 2PM the Sheriff gave an update on the Naomi Jones case. We have received over 350 tips, conducted over 300 interviews and over 35 search warrants during this investigation since May 31st. The ECSO has requested and is receiving the cooperation and assistance of the FBI’s VICAP (violent criminal apprehension program) and the behavioral analysis unit. 

Preliminary autopsy results indicate that Naomi likely met her death within 24 to 36 hours of her disappearance on May 31st. The preliminary autopsy result indicates death was probably due to asphyxiation.

Social media may have played a part leading up to her abduction and untimely death. That still remains to be determined. Sheriff Morgan said, ‘Be a good parent. Know where your children are. Know what they are engaged in.”  

State Attorney Bill Eddins reiterated that there is a big commitment of personnel and resources devoted to this case. He echoed the Sheriff’s remarks that “social media has opened up the world of sexual offenders and sexual predators to many young people in America and that really is a shame.” 

Sheriff Morgan appealed to the community to call the Sheriff’s Office with any information about this case to include any sighting of Naomi after noon on May 31st. There are currently $20,000 in rewards for information leading to the apprehension of the person or persons responsible for her death.
