TX - Jimmy Martin, 39, Normangee, 6 Aug 2007
A search is under way for a missing gay Madison County resident whom investigators fear may have been a victim of violence.
Jimmy Martin, 33, was last seen in his hometown of Normangee on Aug. 6. His burned-out car was found two days later in Centerville, which is in the neighboring county of Leon.
Madison County Deputy Sheriff Paul Cannon said Martin’s mother reported him missing. There is no evidence as to what happened to Martin, Cannon said.
“Right now, we don’t have any clues,” Cannon said. “We’re just not getting any tips whatsoever.”
Cannon said Leon County officials are also involved in the search for Martin because they believe his car was used to run over a woman before it was burned in their county.
“As far as his whereabouts, or what has happened to him, we really don’t know,” Cannon said. “There is a possibility of foul play.”
Frank Black, search organizer for Texas EquuSearch, said he fears the worst has happened to Martin.

Leon County unsolved missing person case qualifies for new reward program
An unsolved missing person case involving a Leon County man now qualifies for a $3,000 from the Texas Rangers, according to Leon County Crime Stoppers.
Jim Craig Martin’s disappearance was first reported to the Normangee Police Department in August 2007.
The Office of the Governor, Texas Department of Public Safety, and Texas Crime Stoppers announced the reward program on Thursday. The program is funded by the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division and administered by DPS. It is designed to help generate investigative leads in unresolved or cold case homicides.
Numerous leads have been investigated in which Martin was killed and his body possibly being disposed of in a rural area of Leon, Madison or Brazos County.
Sylvia Moss of the Normangee Star says Martin’s mother has been running a missing persons ad in the paper every year since he went missing.
"As a mother my heart goes out to her,” said Moss. “She's doing all that she can do."
Wednesday, the paper ran an update from the Governor's office offering a $3,000 cash reward from the Texas Rangers for information that helps solve the case.
Madison County Sheriff Travis Neeley has been working with Leon County to solve the case.
"Basically they arrive back at the same point we do,” said Neeley. “Yes it is probably a homicide but we still don’t know the where, how, or who.”
