Ashburn -- A blood stained napkin marks the spot where police found 32-year-old Robert Callaway Junior. "Saturday May 17 approximately 2:15 P.M., we received a call to the Orchard Hill trailer park here in Ashburn on Carolina Drive," said Ashburn Police Chief, Bryant McCard.
Callaway Junior was later transported to Tift Regional Hospital where he later died from his injuries. "He did have multiple stab wounds to the chest and defensive stab wounds to the arm, legs and back," said McCard.
40-year-old Malcolm Holloman surrendered and is now charged with the murder. "The nature of this argument is not known at this time. It is still under investigation by the GBI who is assisting us," said McCard.
Not even a full day later, Ashburn City Councilman Robert Callaway died in Emory Hospital in Atlanta while awaiting a heart transplant. "The death of councilman Callaway is not related to the notification of the death of his son, as far as I understand it at this time," said McCard.
"Bob, wasn't responding and he didn't know that his son had got killed. And he passed away Sunday morning at 5:30," said Ashburn City Councilman, Tommy Bateman.
And now the City of Ashburn and the Callaway family mourns. "He suffered from a heart ailment for a very long time, but he didn't let that deter him from serving his community. He was very much involved in civic organizations, along with his church and was very committed to the youth of the city," said Ashburn City Manager, Ben Taylor.
"And we are just going to miss Bob all the way around for doing great things for people," said Bateman. They are morning the death of man who has contributed greatly to Ashburn, and the senseless death of his son.
G.B.I. and Ashburn police investigators are still interviewing witnesses of Robert Callaway Juniors murder. If you have any information, call the Ashburn Police Department.
