“Throughout the rest of the apartment was blood on the floor and walls,” the report said. “Items inside were broken and thrown about.”
A paramedic at the scene told officers he believed Foster had been shot, according to the report, though an exact cause of death won’t be released until his autopsy is complete, police said.
Foster’s sister told police she last saw her brother Monday, two days before finding him dead. When she arrived at the apartment, the front door was shut but not locked. She called 911 after opening the door and seeing the blood inside.
It is not clear what led to Foster’s death or how police connected Hawkins to the case. Hawkins was booked into the DeKalb County Jail, where he remains with no bond. In addition to felony murder, he is charged with criminal trespass.
