LAGRANGE, Ga. — Nearly four weeks after a Greenville, Ga. man was found dead in a vehicle in rural Troup County, law enforcement officials are still seeking a final suspect in connection with the homicide.
Sgt. Chad Mann, of the Troup County Sheriff's Department, said a Kimberly's call remains active for Daniel Lee Allen, who faces charges of kidnapping and murder in the death of Dwayne Louder of Greenville. Mann said there have been no developments or additional information since the search for Allen started.
A Kimberly’s Call is an emergency alert issued by law enforcement when violent criminals are at large and may be a serious threat to the public.
Louder was found dead in a car located near Knott and Smokey roads in rural Troup County on the morning of Jan. 3. He appeared to be the victim of a homicide and after further investigation appeared to fit the description of a man kidnapped in Greenville.

Four suspects have already been arrested and charged with kidnapping and murder in the death of Louder. Toray Dontez Porter, 23, of LaGrange was taken into custody Jan. 8. Kelly Lavar Stephens, Arthur Demartino Barrett and Sade Catori Davidson subsequently turned themselves in about two weeks ago.
Mann said residents should call 911 if they see Allen, but should not try to stop him themselves. Allen, who is also known as "Seven," is described as being 6-foot-1-inch, black, 230 pounds and 31 years old.
Anyone with information about the crime or Allen’s whereabouts can reach the Troup County Sheriff’s Office at 706-883-1616 or the Troup County Crime Stoppers hot line at 706-812-1000.
