Savannah-Chatham Metro Police Department’s Violent Crimes detectives have charged two suspects, as one remains at large in an October triple homicide on the 800 block of Lynah Street.

James Angelo Hampton, 22, and Dwayne Leonard Abney, 18, were served warrants at the Chatham County Detention Center, where they were serving time on unrelated charges.

Warrants have been obtained for Diamond Butler, 18, who remains at large. Butler is described as a black female, who stands 5 feet 6 inches and weighs roughly 110 pounds.

Each suspect faces numerous charges including conspiracy to commit murder, malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and burglary in the first degree.

On Oct. 22, at about 8:17 a.m. Metro responded to reports of an open door at the Lynah Street residence. While checking the property officers found Kiana Marshall, 21, Alexis Kitchens, 19, and Isaiah Martin, 18, deceased, with gunshot wounds inside of the house.  

Investigators believe the shootings stemmed from an ongoing tenant’s dispute between Marshall and Butler.

This investigation is a collaboration between SCMPD and the FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force.

Anyone with information on Butler’s location should call CrimeStoppers at 912.234.2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward. A confidential tip line also is open directly to investigators at 912.525.3124.
