Arrest made after dad killed buying drone with LetGo app in DeKalb

DeKalb County police have made an arrest in the death of Sam Norman, a father of four killed while making a purchase with the LetGo app.

But Shiera Campbell, a police department spokeswoman, declined to confirm the name of the suspect. She said the decision to withhold it for now is because investigators are looking into other cases possibly involving the suspect.

Norman, 51, was found slumped over in his pickup truck on Indian Manor Drive on March 3. He was trying to buy a drone, according to police.
