The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office has arrested a suspect for killing a young man and leaving his body in the bushes of a Stone Mountain residential community.
The DeKalb Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit located Aurion Johnson, 22, of Stone Mountain at a Brockett Road apartment in Clarkston, where he was arrested without incident today (April 26). Johnson was charged with the Malice Murder of David Hayman, 20, also of Stone Mountain.
