Georgia man suspected of killing four in 100-mile crime rampage

A Georgia man is suspected of killing four people during a 100-mile, 36-hour crime spree across Alabama, according to reports.

The spree began early Friday, when police believe Derrick Lee Hightower, 32, fatally shot Nancy Nash, 54, in Auburn, possibly because she interrupted a burglary, WVTM reported. Her body was found later that day in Auburn, near a burning truck.

Hightower then allegedly gunned down a couple in Dadeville after a possible robbery at their home. Police have identified the pair as Willie Tidwell, 61, and his 65-year-old wife, Barbara. Formal charges have yet to be filed against him in connection with that incident.

Hightower’s alleged rash of crimes continued in Birmingham, where police say he gunned down Antione Harris, 36, early Saturday during a home invasion, AL.com reports.

Hightower, who was shot in the arm during an exchange of gunfire with cops before he was arrested Saturday afternoon in Birmingham, is also suspected of robbing three people a day earlier at an urgent care office in Chelsea, WVTM reports.

“We are very thankful that this individual has been arrested and is no longer a danger to everyone,” Shelby County Sheriff John Samaniego told the station.

Kentrice Symonee Hill, 21, of Birmingham, was also charged with capital murder in Nash’s death. Her relationship to Hightower is unclear, as is the motive for the man’s alleged 36-hour rampage that spanned roughly 100 miles along US 280, AL.com reports.

“All of these families have been impacted,” Assistant Auburn Police Chief Clarence Stewart told the website. “What possibly has he gone through in his life to lead to this? I believe we are products of our environment and it makes me wonder what brought him to this point.”
