MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A third individual is wanted in connection with the 2014 murder of a University of Memphis graduate, according to sources familiar with the case.

Jarmelle "JoJo" Jones, 26, was shot and killed during a home invasion in November 2014. Investigators said masked men broke into Jones’ Cordova home and killed him. Jones' girlfriend was injured in the attack.

On Wednesday, Raphael Famer and Thaddeus Money were arrested for Jones' murder. Thursday, sources familiar with the investigation said investigators are looking for a third suspect.

Almost everyone who knew Jones said they are one step closer to justice now that two suspects are in police custody and are now facing multiple charges, including murder.

"It's bittersweet. It's something we've been waiting on for a long time," Tim Jordan, Jones' best friend, said.

Specifics on that third suspect have not been released at this time.

"It's definitely been a trying situation," Jones' sister Regina Wallace said. 

Jones worked at Ching's Wings as a cook and was a 2011 University of Memphis graduate. He was a well-known party promoter and member of Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. His acquaintances said he was also a mentor to several local kids. He was known as Mr. U of M.

"He enjoyed life, loved people, loved, loved, loved life," Wallace said. 

The masked men who broke into Jones' home are also accused of stealing his car.

"Hopefully we can get some closure and move forward," Jordan said.

A man full of life now without one. His family and friends still pray for answers and for justice.

"It definitely still hurts. I think about him everyday," Jordan said.

According to family and friends, the men now facing charges did not know Jones. His family and friends said they're trying to continue his legacy. They have a camp in his name and a scholarship at the University of Memphis.
