Police seeking three people in murder investigation

Macon police are seeking the public’s help in finding three people of interest in a murder investigation.

Police are seeking to question Kenneth Pertillo, 26; Antonio Whitehead, 26; and Nekoase Vinson, all of whom live in Macon, authorities said.

Investigators said they need to speak to all three in connection with the death of 24-year-old Marico Deontae “Rico” Williams, who was fatally shot while driving on Eisenhower Parkway on Dec. 28, 2008.

Williams had been out with family members celebrating his birthday at Club Money’s on Pio Nono Avenue and Hits Sports Bar and Grill on Bloomfield Drive just before the shooting.

His family has offered a $5,000 reward for information in addition to the Macon Regional CrimeStoppers reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest.

Investigator Cedric Penson said information from tips led officers to learn they needed to talk with Pertillo, Whitehead and Vinson.

Anyone with information in the case should call the police at (478) 751-7500 or CrimeStoppers at (877) 68-CRIME.
