By Anna Porzio & Scott Hudson, The Augusta Press

A former Richmond County Sheriff’s deputy has been fired from his job with the Snellville Police Department after being compelled to take a polygraph test in connection with the slaying of transgender social media influencer Felycya Harris.

An internal investigation that was started over possible knowledge of the Harris homicide uncovered that Snellville Police Officer Alphonso Forrest failed to disclose on his application that he had been arrested as a juvenile for allegedly improperly touching his cousin and he also failed to disclose that he was once under a three-month long investigation in Richmond County over abuse allegations involving his then 6-year-old daughter.
