One year ago today, early on Sunday morning, May 22, 2022, a Dothan man was murdered while outside a downtown café in the 200 block of East Powell Street. The victim was 21 year-old Jacques Adarius McLeod-Roberts, of Dothan. McLeod-Roberts was outside the business when an unknown person walked up and shot him one time. McLeod-Roberts was pronounced deceased at the scene. No motive and no suspect have been determined since then. Over the last year, investigators have followed up on many leads, all of which have been unsuccessful in bringing resolution to this case.
