The prime suspect in the disappearance and death of U.S. Army veteran, Chase Massner, has been caught.

According to Crime Online, authorities in Dekalb County caught Brad Clement in a grocery store parking lot yesterday in the pouring rain.

Clement was caught by a U-Haul van he reportedly rented under a fake name. When he failed to turn the truck in, the Fugitive Unit followed the lead. They apprehended the suspect barefoot.

Earlier this month, human remains were found behind the house shared by Massner and Clement. Massner went missing over three years ago. 

Clement claimed he consoled Massner the night he disappeared, after the veteran had an argument with his wife. He denied any involvement in the disappearance, and claimed that somebody planted the body in the backyard. “I wasn’t there half the time! Everybody f******* knew that I had the whole house to myself and f****** all the media and everything was all on me after that sh**….Why the f*** would I do that on my property?” Clement reportedly said.

Massner is an Iraq War veteran. He was 26 years old, married and a father of two when he vanished. 

Clement is charged with concealing the death of another person and is currently in Cobb County Detention Center without bail.
