Warrants released Friday detail the home invasion turned kidnapping turned homicide that led to newlywed Theo Moore’s death in Stone Mountain.

Abdul Crawford, 26, is accused of shooting Moore, 48, taking his shirt for fear it contained finger prints and forcing Moore’s husband to an ATM at a nearby gas station. The warrants also note that Crawford lives a few houses down the street from the Moores off North Stone Mountain-Lithonia Road.

It isn’t clear if Crawford knew the victims.

Channel 2 Action News reported that Moore’s husband was allegedly locked in a closet and eventually escaped to call police.

When city officers arrived, they found that the home had been ransacked by two suspects for about an hour an a half, which they noted was a long time in a home invasion. The warrants say televisions and Moore’s car were stolen.

The second suspect hasn’t been named.

Crawford is in the DeKalb County jail, following his arrested in North Carolina, and has no bond. He’s charged with murder, kidnapping and other crimes.
