Reports state that Crawford was last seen by her mother and sister on Wednesday while they were on FaceTime. Her family filed a missing person report on Friday after Crawford was a no show for class or work.
The authorities suspect that Crawford’s roommate, Jordyn Jones, the girlfriend of Brantley, was also a part of the murder.
CNN also reported that days before Crawford’s death, that she filed a police report against Brantley describing that he was making unwanted advances to her, such as kissing and touching. Jones was listed as a witness.
As of now, there is no motive behind the murder. Brantley’s court hearing is scheduled for November 22nd, 2019. He currently remains in Fulton County Jail without bond.
