Chatham County police now say the body found in Pooler yesterday is the third murder in unincorporated Chatham County this year. They say someone beat and strangled to death 29-year-old David Montgomery yesterday at the Poolman business on Ogeechee Road. Montgomery was working there and had been living on the property for about two weeks.
A Pooler maintenance worker found Montgomery's body near the Pooler Parkway. The search for the killer is stretching all the way to Evans County.
"Yes we do have a suspect that we are actively looking for," Capt. Bob Merriman of Chatham County PD told us. "We don't have a warrant, but he's been seen in Claxton, so we are actively seeking him."
