Dade County Man Arrested for Mother’s Death

The GBI arrested Roger Allen Shrader, 58 years old, of Trenton on charges of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, and aggravated assault by strangulation after his mother was found deceased today.

This arrest comes after the Dade County Sheriff’s Office asked agents in the Calhoun regional investigative office to assist with a homicide investigation.

On March 4, 2022,  Dade County deputies responded to 53 Brow Road, Trenton GA to conduct a welfare check.  The deputies discovered a deceased woman identified as Lagatha Shrader Watson, age 81, of Bryant, Alabama.  Watson’s adult son,  Shrader, was taken into custody and booked into the Dade County Jail.

This investigation is active and ongoing. Once complete, the casefile will be given to the Dade County District Attorney for prosecution.

We (DCSO & GBI) are currently working a homicide that occurred at 53 Brow Rd.
A suspect has been identified, and is currently in custody at the Dade County Jail.
