During the evening hours of December 29, 2014, Griffin Police Department Investigator Lt. Tony Thomason made contact with murder suspect Cornelius Henderson. Henderson was wanted for the murder of Demarkis Williams on Nov. 24, 2014 in the 1100 block of W. College St. Ext., in Griffin. After communicating with Henderson for some time Lt. Thomason was able to convince Henderson into turning himself at the Police Department at approximately 6:30 p.m. at which time he was placed under arrest without incident. Earlier that afternoon Griffin Police Department investigators received new leads in the case. Lt. Thomason, lead investigator, stated with the assistance of the Spalding County Sheriff’s Department and several of his investigators they were able to follow up on the new leads which lead to their successful communications with Henderson and ultimately his arrest. Henderson was the third and final suspect involved in the Nov. 24, 2014 homicide. All three are now in custody and being held at the Spalding County jail.
