    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.

    TXDPS - August 15, 2018 DPS Offers Increased Reward, Seeks Leads in 2007 Cold Case

    AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is asking for the public's help in solving the 2007 disappearance of Jim Craig Martin, and an increased reward of up to $6,000 is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of those responsible if the tip is received before next month's featured Texas Rangers cold case is announced. (A $3,000 reward for information leading to an arrest is routinely offered on all cases on the Texas Rangers' Unsolved Homicides website.)

    The disappearance of Jim Craig Martin was reported to the Normangee Police Department in August 2007. Texas Rangers and local authorities conducted interviews with witnesses and possible suspects in the case. During the course of the investigation, information was gathered that Martin was likely killed and his body possibly disposed of in a rural area of Leon, Madison or Brazos counties. His body was never recovered, and the case remains unsolved despite extensive efforts by law enforcement authorities.

    To be eligible for the cash rewards, tipsters MUST provide information to authorities by calling the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-252-TIPS (8477). All tips are anonymous.

    Individuals also can submit information through the Texas Ranger cold case website or by contacting us at 1-800-346-3243 (DPS Missing Persons Hotline).

    Some time last year I found this case on the DPS website and made a fb post so it could be shared since there was no other way to do it. A lady I went to school with said she had known him and I made the post public so it could be shared. Since then its gotten some more exposure and I was glad to hear they were increasing the reward to try getting some information. Another fb friend of mine said her uncle had disappeared in a similar fashion to this case and also in the Madison/Leon County area.

    Was skimming through the Texas Rangers' Unsolved Homicides just now and came across Jim's case. There was an indictment this past July. I searched and it doesn't appear local media picked up on it.

    I found this earlier article on the suspect. Definitely not a good guy.
    Central Texas man called 'armed and dangerous' now in custody
