Pearson Murder Victims Willie J. Oliver & Jerome Nixon

GBI, Pearson PD Seeking Public’s Assistance In February Atco Double Murder

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation’s Douglas Regional Office and the Pearson Police Department are asking for the public for their help in obtaining any possible information related to the deaths of two elderly Atkinson County men that were ruled as homicides.
Seventy-two year old Willie J. Oliver and 62-year old Jerome Nixon were both shot and killed on Saturday, February 10, 2018, in Pearson at a residence located at 371 Allen Avenue. GBI officials said a neighbor of the two men discovered their deceased bodies in the residence and immediately contacted Pearson police.
Autopsies on both men were conducted in the days following their deaths at the GBI State Crime Lab, and their official causes of death were ruled as homicide by gunshots.
The GBI and Pearson Police Department have been actively investigating the murders ever since and are now hoping someone has information that can further assist them in bringing the two men’s killer or killers to justice.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Pearson Police Department at 912-422-7411, the GBI office in Douglas at 1-800-597-8477 or 912-389-4103, or online at
