Bryant resubmitted genetic evidence from the crime to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and found out on March 8 there was a positive match from the Combined DNA Index System, or CODIS, with Terrance Bryant Dean, 39. 


The investigator also learned there was a positive match between Dean and evidence from a rape case, the release states. Police did not release details about what happened in the murder or the rape cases.

Bryant obtained arrest warrants on both cases and with the help of the U.S. Marshals Southeastern Regional Fugitive Task Force took the suspect into custody on March 26. 

“During a search of Dean’s pockets, investigators recovered thirty small bags that contained a white powdery substance,” deputies claim in the release.

Dean was transported to the Bibb County jail and charged with murder, rape, and sale of a controlled substance. 

He is being held without bond.
