It’s been more than seven months since 66-year-old Pembroke man James Young was found dead in his home and authorities called it a homicide. Despite the fact that an arrest has not been made in the case, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said it is not a cold case.

Pembroke police found Young dead the morning of Nov. 10 after someone called to request a welfare check at his home. Pembroke police quickly brought the GBI into the search for answers about the apparent murder.

The details of the investigation, however, haven’t been released.

"We’re making progress," GBI Special Agent in Charge Chuck Sullenger said Friday. "We have had several developments, but we just can’t release them right now because it’s still an open homicide investigation."

PPD Chief Mark Crowe said the GBI hasn’t talked with him about the details of the investigation, but one possible scenario is that it was a robbery gone wrong.

Sullenger encourages anyone with potential information on the case to contact him at (912) 871-1121 or the Pembroke Police at 653-4414.
