ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation says that they have arrested Darrian McDaniel, 27, in Fulton County, and charged him with murder, aggravated assault, and armed robbery in the death of Early County native 54-year-old Thomas Entrekin.

Entrekin was reported missing on January 29th. Fulton County Police say that his body has been found, not far from the Atlanta Braves stadium, Thursday. 

In February, police in Conyers discovered his truck was used in a home invasion.

Investigators say Entrekin lived by himself. His home belonged to his parents, and he was remodeling it when he disappeared. 

The two suspects in the home invasion, Demitric Lawson and Darrian McDaniel, and one juvenile were taken into custody after leading police in Conyers on a chase.

Officials say they aren't sure if Entrekin knew the suspects or if they stole his truck. They don't believe he sold his truck.

Now they are hoping to find a link between the suspects and Entrekin, and ask anyone with information to come forward.
