RCSO Seeks Help in Finding Teen Murder Suspect in November Slaying


Richmond County authorities are seeking the public’s help in locating a teen murder suspect wanted for his role in a November slaying on Verdery Street.

Cameron Williams, 19, is being sought for murder in connection with a Nov. 16 homicide at the intersection of Verdery Street and Oak Street. The teen is known to frequent the vicinity of the incident location and the Georgetown Subdivision. Cameron Williams is considered armed and dangerous, authorities said.

Williams is one of four suspects accused in the shooting death of Myron Garnett. The others already charged with murder: Rodrick Braxton, 15, Anthony Williams, 20, and Shakeichia Jackson, 30.

There are conflicting reports on a motive, but witnesses said Jackson was in a verbal altercation with the victim, who she lived with. A witness told authorities that Garnett had been abusing Jackson.

Also, Jackson reportedly took cocaine from Garnett which caused a disagreement. At some point, the victim’s sister called Garnett’s phone and heard Jackson in the background before the call ended. She called back and Jackson answered.

“If he (Garnett) doesn’t have my money tonight, he is going to die,” Jackson reportedly said. “I don’t care.”

A tipster told authorities that Jackson’s cousins – Anthony and Cameron Williams – were involved in the homicide of Garnett, who died a day after his 32nd birthday. Braxton is being charged as an adult with murder, but he is being held at the Regional Youth Detention Center.

Any information concerning Cameron’s whereabouts, please contact Inv. Tyler Steerman, or any Violent Crimes Investigator at the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1427 or (706) 821-1020.
