Justin Yeng Xiong Body Found
Early Friday night, the remains were discovered in a bag outside of a home in Devereux, Ga., where a 911 call was made. The Hancock County Sheriff’s Office quickly referred the investigation to the GBI and requested a homicide inquiry.
By Saturday, law enforcement had obtained an arrest warrant for the defendant, who was subsequently charged with malice murder and is in the process of being transported to Hancock County, Ga.
The air of uncertainty looms large in the case, and the current reporting on the particulars is sparse.
According to the Macon Telegraph, Demmon has “ties to Florida” and was previously in police custody after being arrested in South Carolina on June 1 for a possible disorderly conduct charge. An unnamed official said to be “familiar with the investigation” told the newspaper that the vehicle Demmon was in when he was initially arrested for the alleged and minor charge that “may” have “helped investigators” tie him to the dead body in Georgia.
“The preliminary investigation reveals that Demmon and another person lived at the residence on occasion,” the GBI said on Sunday morning–referring to the property on Main Street in Devereux. “Identification of the deceased is pending. The body was transported to the GBI Crime Lab in Decatur for autopsy.”
