Police Investigate "Poolman" Homicide

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."
