At least one suspect has been named in the death of a Chattahoochee Valley Community College student at his Avalon Circle mobile home in Seale, Ala.
Russell County Sheriff Heath Taylor said late Thursday that a capital murder warrant has been issued for Jeramiah Levi Sokolgz, 24, in the death of 23-year-old Eric Tunnell Anderson, whose body was found Tuesday at 150 Avalon Circle.
Taylor wouldn't state what led to the warrant.
"It's just interviews and all the people," the sheriff said. "We were able to corroborate some stuff and good old-fashioned police work."
Sokolgz of Fort Mitchell, Ala., is described as black, 6 feet, 3 inches tall, and weighing about 170 pounds.
Known as "Red," he was last seen wearing a red shirt, black shorts, black shoes and a black Falcons ball cap.
Taylor said there may be a second arrest.
"I think there will be at least two," he said.
During a Wednesday news conference, Taylor said investigators were following leads in the slaying. The sheriff said significant items were missing from the mobile home and investigators were looking for those items.
Anderson came from Katy, Texas, a small town just west of Houston, to attend Chattahoochee Valley Community College in Phenix City.
He had been in the area for more than a year, first living with a roommate before getting his own mobile home.Taylor believes Anderson was killed sometime on April 18, four days before a former roommate and the landlord went to the student's mobile home on Tuesday.
Anyone with information on the suspect should call the sheriff's office at 334-298-6535.
