Investigators Release Name, Photo Of Remaining Suspect Sought In Brutal Videotaped Beating Of Atlanta Man
Investigators today released the name and photo of the third suspect sought in connection with the videotaped beating earlier this month of a gay man outside an Atlanta convenience store.
FBI agents believe that Darael Demare Williams, 17, is currently hiding out in the Erie, Pennsylvania area. Williams, pictured at right, is wanted on an arrest warrant issued after the February 4 assault of Brandon White, 20. The warrant charges him with robbery and aggravated assault, both felonies.
According to an FBI press release, Williams, a member of the Pittsburgh Jack City Gang, is likely “staying with friends and relatives in the Erie Area.” Crime Stoppers Atlanta is offering a reward of up to $25,000 for information leading to Williams’s arrest and conviction.
Williams was arrested twice last year in Georgia’s Fulton County, according to jail records. He was busted in April for battery, and then nabbed for prowling in October.
Atlanta cops have previously arrested Christopher Deon Cain, 19, and Dorian Lavale Moragne, 19, for the brutal attack on White, who was beaten while one assailant (and two onlookers) referred to him as a “faggot.” FBI agents are probing the assault as a possible hate crime. Video of the beating went viral shortly after it was posted to the Worldstar Hip Hop web site.
