After four years of a frustrating investigation by the Camden County Sheriff’s Office, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (Kingsland Office), and the District Attorney’s Office in Camden County, someone has been charged with the September 2013 death of Emily Drury.
A true bill of indictment by the Camden County Grand Jury on February 22, 2018 resulted in four charges against Theron Morrell Hendrix in the September 2013 death of Emily Drury. The four-count indictment charges Theron Morrell Hendrix with Malice Murder, Felony Murder, Aggravated Assault, and Burglary.
In 2013, Camden deputies performed a welfare check on Drury at her home and found her lying dead on the floor. Initially, investigators believed she died from natural causes but an autopsy revealed otherwise.
According to a press release from the sheriff’s office, forensic evidence submitted to the GBI Crime Lab, and the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System (CODIS), resulted in the identification of Theron Morrell Hendrix. The suspect is currently incarcerated within the Georgia Prison System. GBI Agents, and Camden County Sheriff’s Investigators, are continuing the investigation.
On the Georgia Department of Corrections Find an Inmate search, Hendrix has had multiple charges in Chatham County for rape, sodomy, cruelty to children, kidnapping, attempted rape, and more.
No further information is being released at this time and the family is asking for privacy from media and other communications.
