Now, Atlanta police don’t know where to find Mapp. But when he’s found, he’ll face a homicide charge for the June 5 killing. A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered for the arrest and conviction of Mapp, accused of stabbing Kelvin Moss on Cairo Street in northwest Atlanta, police and Crime Stoppers said Tuesday.

Address records show Mapp has lived for several years at a Cairo Street address.

After he was stabbed, Moss, a Columbus, Ga., native, was able to get into his car and drive a short distance before he died, according to police.

Mapp, who is 5-feet-6 inches tall and weighs about 155 pounds, has medium brown skin and is believed to be wearing his hair in twists, police said.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact the Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-8477 and can remain anonymous.
