▶MUR­DER SUS­PECT LEFT HIS PASS­PORT AT SHOOT­ING SCENE:

Ripon Bulletin - - Nation -

DE­CATUR, Ga. (AP) — Au­thor­i­ties say a Ge­or­gia man left his pass­port at a shoot­ing scene and was ar­rested when try­ing to re­port the doc­u­ment miss­ing to po­lice.

The At­lanta Jour­nal-Con­sti­tu­tion re­ports DeKalb County ju­rors in­dicted San­jay Ste­wart­son, of Litho­nia, for mal­ice mur­der in the May 8 death of Peter Johnson at a shop­ping plaza.

Ste­wart­son has been held with­out bond since midMay when he walked into the Lawrenceville Po­lice Depart­ment to re­port his pass­port miss­ing.

Au­thor­i­ties be­lieve he didn’t re­al­ize he’d left it at the shoot­ing scene. In­ves­ti­ga­tors also don’t think Ste­wart­son knew he was wanted for ques­tion­ing be­cause po­lice had found the pass­port, along with a phone that al­legedly showed he’d been ar­gu­ing with Johnson over mar­i­juana.
