From Trussville Tribune staff reports
An arrest has been made in the death of a Georgia woman found Saturday at a Decatur motel.
Police have arrested and charged Cary Davis, 25 of Norcross, Ga, with murder. A bond for Davis was set at $250,000.
Efa Mboto, a brother-in-law, of Tiara Alexandra Cole, 22, of Lawrenceville, Ga. said his sister-in-law knew her suspected killer.
“She told her mom she was going to hang out with a friend’s family,” Mboto stated about his sister-in-law’s reason for being in Decatur on Saturday.
A phone message left for Decatur city detective Mike Burleson was not immediately returned prior to publication of this report.
Authorities reported that Cole’s body was discovered at a Quality Inn located on Jameson Drive S.W. in Decatur Saturday afternoon.
Investigators concluded Cole was the victim of a homicide. It is not known for now if an arrest has been made.
“We are trying to work through this as a family,” Mboto stated today in a post on his Facebook page.
Cole had recently moved to Georgia from Richmond, Va., according to Mboto
