Suspect In Jackson Murder Now In Carroll County Jail

A Carroll County grand jury on Wednesday indicted a suspect on murder charges in the 2000 death of a University of West Georgia student.
On October 29, 2000, 22-year-old Toyal Edwana Jackson told her college roommates she was heading to Wal-Mart and left her apartment. It was the last time her friends saw her alive.
35-year old Samuel Lewis Edwards was booked into Carroll County Jail late last night on six counts of murder. He is accused of strangling Jackson and then stabbing her, according to the indictment.
Before being booked into the Carroll County Jail, Edwards was being held in the Heard County jail on unrelated charges. His most recent address is Franklin, Georgia.
Information on how Edwards was recently linked to the crime was not released.
“Because this is a pending case, the district attorney’s office and the Carrollton Police Department will be making no further comments,” senior assistant district attorney, Jeff Hunt said Wednesday.
