On January 25th, 2021, Haralson County Sheriffs Office and Bremen Police Department investigators were continuing to pursue possible leads in the on-going manhunt for murder suspect Christian Taylor Davis. One of many tips had been received by Haralson County Sheriff Stacy Williams, indicating a possible address where Davis was intentionally being concealed from law enforcement by the residents. At approximately 11:00 am, investigators arrived at the residence, which is located within the Felton community of Haralson County.
As investigators made contact with one of the occupants at the front door, murder suspect Davis attempted to flee out of a secondary exit of the residence. Davis was quickly apprehended by law enforcement without further incident. A search warrant was obtained for the residence and upon execution of the warrant, several firearms and a quantity of suspected methamphetamines were located within. Three occupants of the residence had been initially detained during the execution of the search warrant; they were later arrested and currently face criminal charges for hindering the apprehension of Davis, along with other pending charges. A manhunt that has lasted over 16 days and involved hundreds of manhours from multiple agencies has finally concluded.
