Vehicle in Mobile police chase connected to Baldwin double-homicide
ELBERTA, Ala (WKRG) – On Saturday afternoon, 36-year-old Antwon Smith crashed in a vehicle linked to the Elberta double homicide after a brief police chase in Mobile. He has been taken into custody and arrested on gun and drug charges, and for taking stolen property.
How Smith is linked to the deaths of Ryan Frazier and Joshua Carroll is currently unclear or whether he is even a suspect in the murders of the two men. The Baldwin County Major Crimes Unit has been on the case since Friday morning when the bodies of Carroll and Frazier were found on 95 County Road near Elberta.
Both men were linemen and had worked on the recovery effort from Hurricane Sally.
A Pensacola native, Smith has a 10 year criminal history in Escambia County, Florida, including meth and marijuana charges, gun charges, and suspended sentences. He stays in the Mobile Metro Jail.
Baldwin County investigators were expected to update their investigation on Monday. We were told that they interviewed suspects and followed up on leads received earlier today. They are now saying the update could come on Tuesday.
