BALTIMORE (WMAR) - UPDATE: Baltimore Police say that two of the three suspects wanted for the murder of Alex Wroblewski are in custody in Atlanta, Georgia. Baltimore Police were originally told all three suspects had been found. Police say Tonya Hayes and a 23-year-old man thought to be her boyfriend are in custody with Atlanta law enforcement officials. Baltimore Police Officers are enroute to conduct a search and seizure warrant.
The 20-year-old male suspect is still on the loose and thought to be Hayes' son; police believe he is also in the Atlanta area. The initial confusion came when a car was stopped that included some of the suspects and other occupants. Investigators believe the three suspects left the Baltimore area by car immediately after the murder in order to arrive in Atlanta so quickly.
In a press conference, police spokesman T.J. Smith credited multiple tips from the public which helped both identify and locate the suspects quickly.
