Twenty-year-old Jeffrey Hazelwood has been charged in the murder of two teenagers on Monday August 1. The teenage High School students Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis, both 17, were found dead by a delivery man on Monday at 6 am.
Hazelwood who was at the Roswell Detention Center and was later transferred to Fulton County Jail will be charged on two counts of murder. Fulton County Medical Examiner’s Office said that the teens died from gunshot wounds to their heads.
Roswell Police made the arrest on Wednesday morning and took Hazelwood to the Roswell Police Headquarters for questioning.
Roswell Police and Det. Zachary Frommer did not give many details about the evidence that pointed to Hazelwood. They just said that "cell phone data in general from several people was very important in the case.” There seems to be evidence that Hazelwood’s car was parked in the area at the time of the killings.
Both of the victims were high school students and set to start school soon. The police have not yet found any connection between Hazelwood and Davis and Henderson. They are working hard to collect witnesses and evidence. The police have not revealed details of what they believe might have been the motive of the double homicide.
According to police records, Hazelwood has had encounters with police officers but had never harmed another person. He has no criminal record.
According to WSB, when Hazelwood appeared at Court on Friday his hand was shaking repeatedly and his head jerking about. He was denied bond at this hearing.
"We're going to investigate and work hard to help this gentleman,” Zimmerman, Hazelwood’s attorney, said after the hearing according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "It's a sad story. Two young people are dead and a young man is charged. We’ll know more as this goes on."
