Atlanta police chief Erika Shields said at a press conference that authorities were taken to the body by Crawford’s friend and roommate Jordyn Jones. This has led investigators to identify Jones, 21, as a possible suspect in Crawford’s death.
Initially, Jones told officers that he had last seen Crawford on October 30 in his off-campus apartment located 1.3 miles from campus. Investigators have also named Jones’ boyfriend, Barron Brantley, 21, a suspect in the case. Shields said that before Crawford’s disappearance, Crawford presented a police report alleging that Brantley made unwanted advances.

‘While a motive has not been clearly established, the department did make a police report from Alexis Crawford on October 27. In this report, Alexis described unwanted kissing and touching from Barron Brantley,’ Shields said.
‘The case has come to one of the saddest conclusions possible and has been absolutely heartbreaking.’
Police are securing arrest warrants for both suspects.

The day he disappeared, it was reported that Crawford was active in his social media accounts and sent money to his younger sister through the Cash app. Crawford also went to a nearby liquor store with Jones around 11.30 p.m. before the two returned to their apartment at Heritage Station on McDaniel Street. Jones said he last saw Crawford at 12.30 p. M. That night before bedtime. Crawford allegedly told his friends that he was not “comfortable sleeping” in his room due to the incident with Brantley earlier that month.
His mother, Tammy Crawford, said his daughter “seemed to be in a good mood and laughed” when they last spoke. His family said it is rare for Crawford to spend more than a day without talking to his parents or siblings. Bobby Wright, Crawford’s father, said: “I just want you to come home safely, I hope God is walking with you and please avoid any evil that comes your way, and we are here to help you.”
