Arrest made in 16-year-old homicide

  • Follow Latest News

BRUNSWICK, Ga. – Police have charged a suspect with the murder of a Georgia woman who was killed 16 years ago and buried in a shallow grave near her home.

James Edward Calhoun, 46, was arrested and charged with the murder of Janey Day, whose body was found in a makeshift grave in October 1993.

Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering says Mr. Calhoun became a suspect early in the investigation but until recently detectives didn't have enough evidence to charge him.

But detectives say new information and evidence led to Mr. Calhoun's arrest. They refused to reveal the evidence.

Mr. Calhoun is being held without bail at the Duval County Jail in Jacksonville, Fla. and he is expected to be transferred to Georgia next week.

Good to hear, they are

Good to hear, they are working on cold cases. I trust that RCSO is working on some cold cases, too. There are a lot of old murders in 30906, I'd be relieved to hear are cleared. Like Yang Han's, Mr. Dorsey's, Mr. Selmans, and the unidentified young man found behind Golden Harvest Food Bank, for instance. I know they haven't been forgotten. I hope new information will come forward to help investigators. Meanwhile, God bless their souls.

Of course they are working on

Of course they are working on cold cases. Isn't that why Roundtree had those files at his place?

What ever happened to Roundtree anyway? I hope no one has forgotten Tiffany Nelson, Shanta White and her unborn baby, the list goes on.

Save the state a coupla

Save the state a coupla million. 'Accidentally' leave his handcuffs off, let him run and then shoot him. I lived down there and have been hearing about this for years. Everybody thought this [filtered word]did it but all we heard was not enough evidence to convict. I'm glad it finally happened, but 16 years?? Left wingers let this one go...kill the dude now.

Not to forget the Thomson

Not to forget the Thomson murder of the young mother many years ago. I think the house is still vacant - it's near downtown Thomson.

Thanks for caring. I know

Thanks for caring. I know there are people on the sheriff's department that care, too and are hoping for leads. Please, if anyone knows anything they think might be helpful, no matter how trivial it might seem, contact an investigator. You just never know what could make THE difference for any of the above-mentioned cases..
