Conyers sting nabs 9 for pandering, other crimes

CONYERS, Ga. — Nine men are in a metro Atlanta jail after a sting targeting "Johns" soliciting prostitutes.

The operation happened on March 22 in Conyers – one of more than 20 that have taken place since 2013. For law enforcement in Conyers, that year is significant because of two violent acts that were tied to prostitution.

One involved a John being robbed by two men after setting up a meeting with a prostitute on what the department described then as a "popular advertising site."

The second happened a month later and involved four men who allegedly kidnapped, raped and robbed two women who posted an ad for prostitution on another site.

Since then, Conyers Police Chief Gene Wilson and the criminal investigation division have implemented the stings as part of a plan to push back against prostitution and pandering in the city.

"With subsequent news coverage and word of mouth, would-be Johns and prostitutes have proclaimed ‘Conyers is hot’ and are deterred from bringing their business, and the violent crime that comes with it, to our city," the police department shared on social media.

In addition to the pandering and disorderly conduct charges these suspects now face, one man is facing counts of possession of marijuana and obstruction of a law enforcement officer after police say he attempted to escape the scene. After running a short distance, he was caught.

Holly Hunter Is Keeping It Real

Holly Hunter talks about her film and TV career with such a casual, I-can’t-believe-I’m-still-working attitude, that you almost forget just how damn good she is. Almost. From her breakout role as a baby-crazy cop in the Coen Brothers’ sweetly absurd Raising Arizona to, more than 30 years later, her Independent Spirit–nominated turn as a mother fighting for her comatose daughter in The Big Sick, Hunter, 59, has defied the gloomy cliché that compelling roles for female actors only evaporate over time.

GBI releases findings on Rockdale County inmate’s cause of death

CONYERS, Ga. — The Georgia Bureau of Investigation announced it cannot conclusively say how an inmate inside a metro Atlanta jail died earlier this year.

Back on March 12, officials at the Rockdale County Jail called the GBI to help investigate after 22-year-old Shali Tilson of Conyers, Georgia suddenly died. The inmate had only been inside the jail for nine days.

PREVIOUS | GBI investigating inmate death in Rockdale County

Officials found Tilson alone in his cell at the time of his death, with no apparent injuries or identifiable cause.

The GBI performed an autopsy two days later, during which investigators found Tilson’s cause of death to be pulmonary thrombi due to dehydration, essentially blood clots traveled to the lungs. A subdural hemorrhage, or bleeding in the brain usually associated with traumatic brain injury, was also found during the autopsy. However, investigators were unable to say exactly how it happened. No other fractures or injuries were found.

After the autopsy, the GBI ruled the manner of death as “undetermined.”

Tilson was came to the jail after he was arrested by Conyers Police on March 3 for two misdemeanor charges – disorderly conduct and obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

A police report stated that during that incident, Tilson was found trying to kick in a door and yelling profanities. Police eventually tried to take him into custody and said he was combative and resisted the entire time – so much so that jail staff had to place him in a transport chair upon arrival.

The report stated he became aggressive yet again when authorities read warrants to Tilson, who allegedly asked them why they didn’t just shoot him.

After Tilson’s death, the sheriff’s office said they would conduct an investigation of the incident and turn any findings over to the GBI. Investigators will also turn over their findings to Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levett.

“My greatest concern and priority is getting answers to what happened to Mr. Tilson,” Levett said at the time. “I am deeply saddened by his death.”

The case will now be turned over to the Rockdale Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office for review. Tilson’s family was briefed on the investigation and autopsy shortly after it was performed.
