A resolution from the Bay County Board of Commissioners recognized the work of 9-1-1 Supervisor Jeffrey Whelton who helped investigators unravel a December 7th homicide in Auburn.

As Whelton tried to find the female victim’s next of kin, he looked through numerous sources including Facebook before locating the ex-husband.

Authorities say Whelton’s work played a critical role in finding and arresting that man who turned out to be the suspect.
