Douglas-- Authorities say they have solved a two year old triple homicide in Coffee County with an arrest early Thursday.

It appears the murders are related to illegal drug trafficking. The GBI arrested 26-year-old Reno Hodges at his home in Homerville, and charged him with three counts of murder.

Twenty-five-year-old Rodney Gaskin was found shot at his girlfriend's home March 11, 2001. Five hours later, 24-year- old George Williams III and 22-year- old Shannon Smith were found shot to death in a car at Roundtree Park.

Authorities said early in the investigation the shooting deaths appeared to drug related, and today Hodges was arrested along with other suspected drug dealers in Clinch and Atkinson Counties.

A second suspect, 23-year-old Travis Morris of Homerville, is also wanted in the triple homicide, but remains at-large.
