Valdosta police need your help in solving the murder of Valdosta State University freshman Jasmine Benjamin, who was found unresponsive on a couch in a study room of her dorm last week. The police have determined that her death was a homicide. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are involved in the case.
Jackson and Jasmine’s mother, Judith Brogdon, had high hopes for their oldest daughter, who they said was always a joy to be around. They looked forward to seeing the Central Gwinnett High School graduate make the four-and-a-half hour trip back to Lawrenceville earlier this week for Thanksgiving dinner and Black Friday shopping with the family.
If you have any information about 17 year old Jasmine Benjamin’s death, please call Valdosta State University police at 229-333-7815 or the Valdosta police crime hotline at 229-293-3091.
