“She stated that he did not say exactly where he was going but normally he always returns immediately,” the police report said.
An hour later, after Doby hadn’t returned, police said the fiancé called his cell phone only to have the call, and every subsequent call, forwarded directly to voice mail.
On Sept. 12, City of Atlanta workers inspecting watershed storm drains near 3540 North Camp Creek Parkway found a burned vehicle.
Police called to the scene found a body in the trunk.
Fulton County Medical Examiners identified the body as Doby.
Investigators haven’t yet determined whether he was killed before he was put into the trunk and the car was burned.
Police are investigating Doby’s death as a homicide, Guerrucci said.
“We really haven’t established a motive or suspect,” he said. “Somebody’s got to know something. Any information, we would welcome.”
Police are asking that anyone with information about this is asked to call Crime Stoppers of Atlanta at 404-577-8477. A reward is available for any information leading to an arrest or conviction, and anonymous tips are welcomed.
