    Also said there were 800 pics... and If you look at the house before it was demolished...it had a lot of mirrors....Of all the pictures out there I didn't recognize the chairs and the red wall...maybe it was taken somewhere else years earlier? He went to prison...when was he going to prison and why? Where did he live before he went to prisson? When was Jori Gunter missing?


    • May 22, 2012: Tillis’ mother, Margie, signs over her house at 3551 Bowden Circle East to Russell Tillis after he’s released from prison.
    • June 19, 2012: Margie Tillis dies.
    • May 28, 2015: Tillis is arrested for aggravated assault on two police officers who went to his home to arrest him on outstanding warrants.
    • Feb. 11, 2016: Jacksonville Sheriff's Office finds human remains at Tillis’ home after digging for two days. The search warrant was obtained after police got a tip Feb. 5 from a jail inmate.
    • March 1, 2016: JSO releases a faded photograph of a woman in connection with the investigation, hoping someone recognizes her. JSO still does not know the woman's identity.
    • July 21, 2016: Medical examiner lists the cause of death of the remains found as a homicide. There's still no identity on the victim. Tillis’ house is condemned.
    • Dec. 8, 2016: Police identify the murder victim as Joni Lynn Gunter, announce Tillis is charged with murder, kidnapping and other charges, and say there could be more victims.

    "Suspect Russell Tillis targeted vulnerable members of our society," Asst. Chief Scott Dingee said. "Based on statements Tillis made, we believe it’s highly likely that other females were victimized by Tillis, including other murders. Based on his history, Tillis sought out vulnerable young females -- white females, in particular, with a history of drug abuse and prostitution. So we ask that anyone who knew the victim or anyone who may have been victimized by Tillis, anyone who has family members that may have associated with Tillis and now their family members are missing, anyone with additional information, we ask that they contact the police."
    Police searched Tillis' Bowden Circle East property for days after Gunter's body was found, but said they found no other human remains.
    They returned to search the property again earlier this year but have not said if the second search turned up any remains. Jury selection for Tillis' kidnapping and murder trial will begin Nov. 5, 2018. Prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty.
    MichaŽl, please protect us all from evil.

    Court documents reveal potential strategy in Tillis case

    Court documents are shedding light on the potential strategy for both the prosecution and the defense in the Russell Tillis murder trial.


    Monday, Tillis’ attorneys filed a motion for a bill of particulars, asking the state to provide the most specific timeline possible for Gunter’s murder.
    “You need to know, as a defense attorney, when these incidents occurred,” Janet Johnson, a criminal defense attorney who is not associated with the Tillis case, said. “So that I can…was my client there? Was he incarcerated? Was he somewhere where he has witnesses?”

    Johnson added that the state will likely have a hard time pinning down the exact time of Gunter’s death, which the defense could use in trial.
