Three weeks after a teen couple was found dead about 200 yards apart from each other in a Gwinnett County subdivision, police released surveillance video showing someone wanted in connection with the deaths.
In the video, the armed suspect can be seen walking with 18-year-old victim Jaquille Thomas in the direction where the victim was ultimately found dead near Wandering Way, Gwinnett County Police Department Cpl. Deon Washington said.
Thomas and his girlfriend, 19-year-old Angelique Bowman, both of Stone Mountain, were found dead Jan. 25.
Surveyors working in the area told police they found a man suffering from gunshot wounds between two homes in the 6000 block of Wandering Way, Washington said. So officers went to the scene about 9 a.m. While investigating the incident, a second caller told Gwinnett police a theft had occurred at a subdivision clubhouse in the area.
As police investigated the theft, they found the woman later identified as Bowman suffering from gunshot wounds in an SUV, Washington said.
Thomas and Bowman were both supposed to start college Jan. 26, family earlier told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Instead, their loved ones gathered Jan. 27 for a candlelight vigil.
“That was my baby,” Thomas’ grandfather, Gean Harden, told Channel 2 Action News. “I’m just hurt. I’m tore to pieces, man. It’s like my heart…that was my heart man.”
Anyone with information about the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Gwinnett homicide at 770-513-5300.
