FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) - Florence Police investigators say a killer is on the loose.  Detectives are working around the clock on the homicide case, after a woman was found dead in a City Lodge hotel room in Florence.

Detectives are tracking down every lead, in the murder of Lula Addison.  However the time lapse in when Addison was found, and when detectives believe she died, put investigators behind.

That's why investigators at the Florence Police Department say information from the public is vital to solving this case.

Detectives say Addison was found inside the hotel, in a suspicious location.

In this week’s Shoals Area Most Wanted, Sheffield Police need help putting people behind bars who have warrants out for their arrest.

First detectives say John White has been driving around the Shoals with a suspended license and no insurance.

Next William Hodges is accused of driving under the influence.

Sheffield investigators also want Philip Carter behind bars.  Carter is accused of attempting to elude police.

Shoals Area Crime Stoppers is getting results.  Information to the tipline led to the arrest of 18-year-old Jacob Ryan in the beating and robbery of a Quik Stop gas station clerk on Cloverdale Road.  A juvenile is also in custody.

If you know where any of this week's Most Wanted may be, or can point police in the right direction regarding Lula Addison's murder, leave an anonymous tip on the Shoals Area Crime Stoppers tipline.

That number is 256-386-8685.  If the information you leave, leads to an arrest, it could be worth a cash reward.
