BRUNSWICK, Ga. (WSAV) — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Brunswick Police Department arrested a man in connection with the murder of a Brunswick couple and their grandson.

Roger Owens was arrested Tuesday, October 10, for the murders of Carson Holliman 64, his wife, Vondell Holliman 63, and their grandson, Christopher Holliman 24.

The 22-year-old is charged with three counts of Malice Murder.

On Sunday, June 18, 2017, the Hollimans were found shot to death at their residence located at 2220 Wolfe Street in Brunswick.

A neighbor says just one day before Owens was arrested, he was acting strangely.

“He came and had a few words with me and he was nervous,” says Reginald Beckham, a neighbor. “He was saying he was on the run for a probation violation, but it wasn’t making sense, so I told my neighbors that I heard in the streets police are looking for him.”

It’s unclear how Owens was linked to the murders, but neighbors say they are glad an arrest was made.

“I’m kinda glad this case is closed and they picked him up because those people didn’t deserve that,” says Beckham.

Police haven’t reported a motive, but some neighbors believe it may have been a robbery.

The investigation is still ongoing and anyone with information is encouraged to contact the GBI, 912-729-6198, or the Brunswick Police Department, 912-267-5516.
