Georgia Police Searching For Culprit After Teen Couple Discovered Dead In Car On Thanksgiving
Police are currently searching for the person, or people, behind the double murder of Dahmir Robinson and Savannah Fulmer.
Police in Georgia are searching for answers after two teens were found dead in a parked car on Thanksgiving day.
Dahmir Robinson, 19, and Savannah Fulmer, 18, were found deceased on Thanksgiving in a car that was parked in the McDonough neighborhood of Henry County, Georgia, according to local outlet WSB-TV. Residents in the neighborhood noticed the car early that morning, but initially assumed that the occupants were sleeping; it was only upon closer inspection that one neighbor, Jamie Aldonado, realized that the two teens were dead after he noticed that the male victim had a bullet wound, the outlet reports.
Aldonado told WSB-TV that there were no bullet holes in the car, which police say belonged to a relative.
A suspect or suspects have not been identified, but police believe that it is “likely” that whoever committed the crime knew the victims, CBS46 reports.
The two teens, who were dating at the time, were residents of Henry County but did not live in the neighborhood in which they were found. Authorities also believe that the fatal shooting did take place near where they were found.
“I can tell you that there was evidence that led us to believe that the shooting did happen there, they were not dumped there as some might suggest,” McDonough Police Major Kyle Helgerson told CBS46.
Detective William Poss, of the McDonough Police Department, confirmed that the two teens were shot in the head, but could not comment as to why the pair were in the neighborhood, who was driving the vehicle at the time, or if a weapon was recovered at the scene, according to Atlanta’s Fox 5.
“Right now, we’re just asking for the public’s help to generate any leads any information we can use,” Poss said.
Fulmer was in her last year of high school at Eagle's Landing High School while Robinson graduated from Woodland High School the previous year, according to WSB-TV. They’d been dating for three years.
Fulmer was a student athlete. Brittany Lewis, her former softball coach, remembered her fondly in a statement to CBS46.
“Savannah had a kind heart and a sweet spirit. She always gave me a hug and told me how much fun she was having playing the game. I will always remember her as I step on the field from here on out,” she said.
Authorities are asking for anyone with information regarding the case to contact Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477.
