Clue 1

leads (via geographical coordinates) to places called HIS, DAD, KILL, and JONES.

Clue 2

is made from letter numbers run together; they say HIS NAME IS NATHAN.

Clue 3

refers to "the ones who sing his song"; well, "Nathan Jones" is a song by The Supremes, who came from Detroit.

So I think

the murderer is called Nathan Jones and the murder was committed in Detroit.

[EDITED to add:]

Of course, as OP implies in comments, "he/his" in clue 3 have to refer to the victim rather than the murderer, and all we know about him is that he's "Mr Jones". There's a song called "Mister Jones" by a group called "Counting Crows" from Berkeley, CA., so perhaps the murder was committed in Berkeley? (But there are an awful lot of Joneses and probably an awful lot of songs about people who could be Mr Jones...)

  • $\begingroup$ You are pretty close, the only one you didn't get is the Clue n° 3, with the rest you are on point. (He is NOT Nathan Jones) $\endgroup$ – D. Mellow Nov 14 '17 at 13:43
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, sorry, of course Nathan is the dad. Hmm. if all we know about the victim is that his name is Jones then it seems like there are going to be a lot of candidates for "his song"... $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Nov 14 '17 at 13:55
  • $\begingroup$ But you are right in the edit, the song is "Mr. Jones" from Counting Crows, so the murder took place in Berkeley. $\endgroup$ – D. Mellow Nov 14 '17 at 14:21
