According to a police report, Guerra had told a friend that he was going to the apartment to meet up with a woman he met on the social media app “MeetMe.” The woman’s page was later linked to Carter, who police said is dating Russell Williams.
Guerra’s friend later got a text from the victim’s phone saying that Guerra had been beaten up and needed help or he was going to die, according to the police report.
The same day Guerra died, investigators learned another man had been beaten in a similar attack.
Simon Fuentes, 48, told police he went to the Leland Place Apartments to meet a woman Sunday and was robbed and struck with a baseball bat by two men and a woman. He suffered a broken arm and injuries to his head, but is expected to survive.
Investigators learned Monday that the suspects were at the Red Roof Inn on Brook Hollow Parkway in Norcross and took them into custody.
Police said the suspects might have victimized more people if they were not caught.
“We are very fortunate that these suspects were caught as quickly as they were,” the statement said.
