Homicide Suspect Apprehended



October 26, 2017


Sheriff Keith Havard and the George County Sheriff’s Department apprehended a homicide suspect and his female companion at approximately 6pm Wednesday, October 25th, 2017. Less than twenty-four hours after fleeing the scene, Arron Jeffery Gill (24) and Christina Len Pierce (26), both of George County, were located hiding in a residence on Hwy 26 West in George County. Mr. Gill was placed under arrest on a warrant for Homicide, and he is now in custody at the George County Regional Correctional Facility after receiving a $1 million bond during his initial appearance before George County Justice Court Judge Jessie Underwood. Ms. Pierce was detained for questioning and then released, pending further investigation.

Sheriff Havard would like to thank all those who aided in this manhunt, including several area officers from other law enforcement agencies.
