How my heart breaks just having to write this message. The unfathomable thought of having to bury a child. There are no words that can bring peace. No words that can bring comfort. An innocent life, that was taken from this world way too soon. A laugh that will no longer fill the room. A smile that will no longer light the darkness. Ja has been in our life for a long time. It was amazing watching him grow into one of the best fathers around. A man, that took on the role that even most women struggle with daily. A man, that was the sole caretaker of his only child, now has the tragedy of having to lay him to rest. I come to you all to ask for your help and support for this grieving father in this horrific time of need.

The autopsy results are still pending but with the provided information and multiple interviews, Poague was identified as GBI’s star suspect.

Poague is currently being held in Sumter County Jail without bond but faces life in prison if convicted.
