BROOKS COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) - The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has identified the man they suspect was murdered by his roommates in Brooks County. 

On April 7, 2017, the GBI Thomasville Field Office was requested by Brooks County Sheriff Mike Dewey to initiate an investigation regarding a murder that took place at 1789 Dewberry Short Road in Brooks County.

Brooks County deputies were called to the scene where Martin Solis was discovered dead inside his residence.

During the investigation, it was learned Solis had two other roommates who were now missing. 

Following an investigation, agents were able to piece together that a fight had broken out between the three men the previous night. Deputies also learned that there was an incident at a local Quitman business as well.

Saturday afternoon, agents got a tip that led them to believe the roommates, Jaime Lopez Martinez and Luis Felipe Mollinedo Lopez, were in the Lowndes County area, possibly around I-75 and the Madison Highway. 

Agents and Lowndes County Sheriff’s Deputies conducted surveillance and ended up arresting three individuals which included the two roommates at about 7:45 p.m. in the parking lot of the Pilot Truck Stop on Madison Highway.

The third individual arrested was identified as Andres Mollinedo Lopez who drove from Virginia to pick the other two men up.

Jaime Lopez Martinez and Luis Felipe Mollinedo Lopez are both being charged with murder, aggravated assault, and armed robbery.

Andres Mollinedo Lopez has been charged with giving false information and hindering the apprehension of a fugitive in Lowndes County. 

Anyone with information concerning this investigation is asked to call the GBI Thomasville Office at 229-225-4090.
