GA - Three men killed in three-county robbery spree, Oct 2010 - March 2011
The man, whose name has not been released, appeared to be in his 20s or 30s, Officer Jason Gagnon with DeKalb County police said. The body was found off Wild Ginger Road, near Lithonia.
An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death, but investigators have ruled out suicide, Gagnon said.
The man was a homicide victim, Gagnon said. Police have not determined how long the body had been in the woods.
Investigators know who the man is, but have been unable to locate his family."Opinion is the medium between knowledge and ignorance."~ Plato

So sad for the man's family, I hope they track them down soon.
The kids were either traumatized or it was an adventure (think "Stand by Me")

GA - FBI Searching for Serial Bank Robber Who Murdered An Armored Car Driver
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is pouring over surveillance video and sorting through police tips -- trying to find a man who shot and killed an armored car driver in Dekalb County Tuesday.
They say this is the latest in a string of armored car attacks – seven different armored car attacks in the past six months.
The company that owns the armored car in the latest attack – Garda – is offering a $100,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects in the case.

From January 2011:
Police have identified a body discovered by a 4- and 6-year-old while riding their bicycles near a wooded area."We have positively identified the deceased victim from yesterday's murder as Christopher M. Bennett, 21 years of age"...
[P]rosecutors now believe the 2010 murder of a DeKalb County club owner was an inside job and tied to a violent robbing crew, with a string of serious charges....
The newest case tied to the group is one that prosecutors now believe was the first crime in the spree, the murder of Pin-Ups strip club owner Terry Stephenson in September 2010. Stephenson was carrying a large deposit from the business, heading to a bank when he was ambushed in the parking lot...
The racketeering charge also ties the whole group together, along with two additional homicides: Chris Bennett, who investigators believe was a co-conspirator, and Gary Castillo, an armored car guard gunned down outside a Toco Hills Kroger in March 2011.
The manager of East Ponce de Leon Avenue strip club and two alleged members of a notorious robbery crew have been charged in the 2010 fatal shooting of the DeKalb County club's owner.
The manager of Pin Ups, Charles Edward Daniels, and Stacey Lamont Dooley, 35, and Ashley Antwan Henderson, 28, were charged with murder last week by a DeKalb grand jury...
On Oct. 7, they held up a Marietta armored guard and stole $104,694 in cash from his truck, according to the indictment. Over the next three months they allegedly targeted four more armored truck drivers, shooting one. The crew made off with at least $240,000 in those thefts, prosecutors say.
