Garry murder mystery may be solved

CORDELE, GA (WALB) -

An arrest has been made in a long-running murder mystery in Crisp County.

The man accused of killing a Cordele woman will make his first appearance in court Friday at 8:30 a.m.

 Ashley Garry was killed in her home in September of 2014 when she was 27, and there were almost no clues left behind.

Sheriff Billy Hancock announced Thursday the arrest of 25-year-old Cameron Carter from 114 Charlie Circle in Cordele. They found the .380 pistol used in the murder. He is charged with malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, first degree home invasion, and numerous gun charges.

Carter was arrested in Pulaski County during a burglary in progress on November 11. 2014. That's when GBI and Crisp deputies found the weapon, a Jimenez .380 pistol. The weapon was key in tying Carter to Garry's murder.

Garry worked at the Cracker Barrel in Cordele for more than five years. The reward offered for information in this case climbed from $1,500 to $6,500 after Cracker Barrel added to the total.

Garry's Cracker Barrel co-workers had a bake sale to raise money to help find the person who killed her. She leaves behind a young son.

No one wants it more than Ashley Garry's 10 year old son Jarmal. "I'm very sad and I hope they find who did this and when they do I will appreciate it and I will thank them a lot," he said in 2014.

Sheriff Billy Hancock says they don't investigate many Crisp County murders, but when they do, they usually solve them quickly. "This is the first homicide since 2011 outside the city limits of Cordele, and the first since 1997 that this agency hasn't, along with the people you see here, hasn't solved within three days of the incident."
