20-year-old charged with murder of high school students in Roswell

ROSEWELL, Ga. — Police say 20-year-old Jeffrey Hazelwood of Roswell has been charged with the murder of two high school students found dead behind a Publix grocery store in Roswell, WGCL reported.

A delivery driver discovered the bodies of Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis, both 17-years-old, just before 6 a.m. Monday. Police said their bodies were on the ground by two vehicles.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner said the two teenagers each died from a single gunshot wound of the head.

Hazelwood has been charged with two counts of murder. He is at the Roswell Detention Center and will eventually be transferred to the Fulton County Jail.

Detectives executed a search warrant at a home on Gilhams Road in Cobb County near Roswell Wednesday morning. They did not disclose what they were looking for or what the connection to the case could be.

However, Hazelweood’s Facebook page says he’s in a relationship with a female who WGCL learned lives at the house police searched.

Police did not name a motive in the shootings.
