Donta Rogers

Elba Police continue to seek help in solving the January 16, 2020 murder of Donta Jaqun Rogers, and announced this week that the Central Alabama CrimeStoppers division is offering a cash reward of up to $5,000 for a tip that results in the capture and conviction of the person(s) responsible for killing Rogers. Elba Police Chief Leslie Hussey said the murder occurred during the early morning hours of Jan. 16th when an unknown person or persons went to 617 Putnam Street in Elba. He said Rogers was shot at that location. He later died at a Montgomery, Ala. hospital due to the gunshot wounds. Hussey said the unknown supect(s) fled the scene by unknown means or direction. Rogers was 26-years-old at the time of his death. Anyone with information regarding this homicide investigation is urged to immediately call the Elba Police Department [897-2555] or CrimeStoppers using the 24-hour tip line at 215-STOP [7867]. Also, anyone can download the CrimeStoppers P3-tip app for their phone, computer or other electronic device to provide information privately to CrimeStoppers, which in turn, reports that information to the Elba Police Department keeping the informant anonymous. If using the P3-tip app, be sure to receive a Tip ID and Password in order to dialog with investigators in case there are follow-up questions. One may also use CrimeStoppers new 800 number, 1-833-AL1-STOP. Again, a tip that leads to the capture and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of Donta Rogers can lead to up to a $5,000 cash reward for the tipster. Chief Hussey said this remains an active homicide investigation, and he hopes the new cash reward being offered by CrimeStoppers will assist the department in making an arrest for Rogers’ murder.
