MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - A mother of three is found dead in her home on Memorial Day
sending Macon Police on the hunt for a man who may have information on her murder.
According to the incident report, 29 year-old Candice Rice was found dead in her home on Lafayette Drive in Macon just after 9pm on Monday night.
Her father, Gregory Rice was at his daughter's home when Macon Police found her body. There's no suspect in the case, but police are looking for Candice's boyfriend, Bobby Lee Fordham, Jr. for more information.
"I didn't have good vibes about her boyfriend," says Rice.
Her step-mother, Bernadine Rice believes Fordham has something to do with Candice's murder.
"It couldn't have been no one else."
Bernadine Rice says Candice lives with Fordham. She says Candice never brought up anything about the nature of her relationship with Fordham. Candice did talk to someone about her relationship, according to her neighbor Daphne Celis. Celis says about 3 weeks ago, Candice came to her home and asked to use her phone.
"I asked her what was wrong and she told me that she had an abusive boyfriend problem."
In the incident report, the officer on the crime scene wrote, "Mr. Rice advised that he was worried about his daughter because he heard from Ms. Willie M. Oglesby that her boyfriend, black male, Bobby Fordham Jr. had beat her up."
Macon Police are looking for Fordham, but at this point he is not a suspect, just a person of interest. Fordham is described as a light skinned male just over 6 feet tall, weighing between 165 and 170 pounds. He has a mole under his left eye.
Anyone with information on this case should call Crimestoppers. That number is 1-877-68-CRIME.
