Augusta Suspect in Woman’s Death Kills Himself After Chase Down Washington Road

-

An Augusta man wanted for questioning in a woman’s murder killed himself Monday night after a chase down Washington Road, authorities said.

Tarance Revell, 46, was being sought in the shooting death of 46-year-old Latoya Price on Algernon Circle. She was found at the home around 6 p.m. Monday and Revell quickly became a suspect.

“At 9:53 pm, the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office located a suspect in the homicide driving the victim’s vehicle,” sheriff’s Sgt. Caleb Lee said.

“The suspect initiated a traffic pursuit which ended on the 3100 block of Washington Road. The Georgia State Patrol assisted in the pursuit. When Deputies approached the suspect’s vehicle, they observed he had suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was pronounced deceased.”

Revell and Price are pictured together in a longtime relationship, according to their Facebook profiles. Revell, who was listed as 6’9″ tall in booking reports, has been arrested several times in Richmond and Columbia counties for cocaine possession, drunk driving, open container and driving on a suspended license.

In his last Facebook post, dated Dec. 23, 2023, Revell joked about going “postal.”

“I laugh to myself about a lot of s**t..cause yall dont think I will go postal,” he wrote. “Im waiting on the right time…licking the stamp right now..ijk”

Autopsies are planned at the GBI lab in Atlanta for Revell and Price, according to Chief Deputy Coroner Kenneth Boose Sr.

The sheriff’s office has not commented on a possible motive in the murder, but the chase happened in the middle of Masters Week when visitors flock to Washington Road.
