Original, 03/19/2019: (Lawrenceville, Georgia) The Gwinnett County Police Department is actively investigating a double homicide in coordination with the FBI Safe Streets Task Force and the Athens-Clarke County Police Department.
The bodies of two adult men were found inside a storage unit at the Extra Space Storage located at 2040 Lawrenceville Highway in unincorporated Lawrenceville on Sunday, March 17. As of now, the bodies have been preliminarily identified as Derrick D. Ruff (age 25) and Joshua L. Jackson (age 25). Notification has been made to the victims’ families.
Derrick and Joshua were reported missing through the Athens-Clarke County Police Department in mid-December. They were last seen on December 18 at around 10pm in a Ford Expedition.
The Ford Expedition was eventually found abandoned in a neighborhood off Monfort Road in unincorporated Lawrenceville on December 21, 2018.
On Sunday, March 17, GCPD along with the FBI Safe Streets Task Force focused their efforts along an area of Lawrenceville Highway near Clearwater Place. Cadaver dogs with the Alpha Team K9 Search and Rescue were brought in to aid in the search. The dogs alerted to a storage unit inside the Extra Space Storage facility.
After the investigators assigned to the Homicide Unit opened the unit’s garage door, the victims were found. It appears that they died of gunshot wounds.
The investigators are in the process of identifying all the suspects in this case. As of now, two people have been charged in relation to this crime.
- Lesley Chappell Green (age 30, Stone Mountain) is currently in custody at the Gwinnett County Jail. He is being charged with two counts of Concealing the Death of Another.
- Robert Maurice Carlisle (age 32, Lithonia) has two active warrants for Concealing the Death of Another. Carlisle is not in police custody. His whereabouts are unknown.
As more suspects are identified, additional people could be charged. As the investigation continues, Green and Carlisle could face more criminal charges.
As of now, detectives are still trying to determine the link between the storage facility unit with the suspects and victims. The renters of the storage unit have been cooperative with this investigation.
The motivation behind this crime appears to be gang-related.
