3 arrested in 11-year-old cold case in Ware County

Three people are facing murder charges after new information led to a break in an 11-year-old cold case in Ware County, authorities said.

William Faison, Robert Hall and Dexter Carradine were arrested this week in the death of Anthony Vickers.

A passerby spotted a burned body in June 2006 off Carswell Avenue near N. Clough Bay Road.

Detectives said Vickers was killed at a different location and his body was dumped on the side of the road.

Ware County Sheriff's Office and the Georgia Bureau of Investigation investigated the case for more than 10 years before new information led them to the suspects.

Warrants were issued and detectives learned Carradine is already serving a life sentence in Georgia for the 2014 slaying of Rodrez Deon Williams. 

Deputies arrested Faison without incident at his home on Euclid Avenue in Waycross.

Hall was arrested in Missouri and will be extradited to Ware County.

“I’ve always felt those three were involved and did that to him and (tried) to burn his body up,” Vickers' mom Rosa Sanders said.

She said she’ll never forget the phone call from detectives in 2006.

“Nobody knows how that feels to have your child come back in pieces,” Sanders said. “I want justice. That’s all. That’s all. I just want justice.”

Sanders said the arrests bring some closure but they don’t bring back her son, who was a father of three.

Vickers’ family said they plan to attend every court hearing to make sure justice is served.
