Jacksonville police on the hunt for murder suspect


Jacksonville police are looking for 21-year-old, Raphael Cortez Kennedy. He is wanted in connection to a homicide.

Investigators say he is from Springfield and has family in the Decatur area. Officers already arrested the other suspect in the case, Julius Washington. They both face charges related to a homicide from September of 2007.

Police found Earl Capone Jackson dead in the 600 block of Hooker Street after a report of shots fired. After a lengthy investigation, warrants were issued for Washington and Kennedy.

Kennedy is still at large and Morgan and Scott County crimestoppers say to call 911 if you see him. If you have a tip that could help police find Kennedy, you can remain anonymous by calling 243-7300.

There is a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to his arrest.
