The Tuscaloosa County Violent Crimes Unit was able to identify two individuals and track them down in Lowndes County with the assistance of other law enforcement agencies.
Two males have been taken into custody in Lowndes County on suspicion of being involved in a double killing that occurred in Tuscaloosa County.
At approximately 6:15 in the morning on January 8, deputies were dispatched to Interstate 20/Highway 59 east in the Fosters hamlet. A caller said that they were concerned that they had run over someone while driving.
The caller came to a stop and waited for the deputies, at which time they were completely cooperative. The deputies discovered a body in the road that appeared to have been struck. Along with the deputies, ALEA Troopers were also dispatched to the scene to conduct an investigation into the collision. After examining the evidence at the site, investigators quickly came to the conclusion that the victim had not been killed as a result of being struck by the bystander. The Violent Crimes Unit was requested to assume control of the investigation once it was initiated.
A short while later, at approximately 6:55 AM, another passerby reported someone sleeping next to the road at Frog Ridge Road, which is also located in the Fosters subdivision. Soon after, deputies arrived at the site and found that the victim had also passed away, and that their deaths were the result of either an attack or a shooting. Investigators who investigate violent crimes were also dispatched to the scene.
Both victims were identified as being 23 years old: Justin Michael Whitfield and Destin Rashard Holley. Both were from Montgomery region.
In the region of Hayneville in Lowndes County, a vehicle that belonged to one of the victims was discovered, and it contained proof of the crimes that had taken place. Immediately after the incident, detectives from VCU were dispatched to Lowndes County, where they collaborated with investigators, officers, and deputies from multiple other agencies. The Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office, the Hayneville Police Department, the Ft. Deposit Police Department, the Alabama Department of Corrections, and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were among those involved.
The charges against Keondre Jazel McCall, 19, and Mance Quinnell McCall Jr., 19, include capital murder.
In this case, you can’t say enough about how hard the investigators, forensic crime analysts, crime scene technicians, and other people in the Violent Crimes Unit worked. The level of experience, the ability to work together and share resources, and, most of all, a “never give up” attitude made it easy to figure out who the victims were and then catch the dangerous suspects. Captain Jack Kennedy said that everyone in the group worked together to solve this case.
