EXCLUSIVE | Warrants show accused murderer lived in deadbolted bedroom

Hazelwood clothing, tablet, journal seized

ROSWELL, Ga. -- New documents obtained exclusively by 11Alive News reveal what investigators took during their search for clues in the case of a double murder in Roswell.

In August, police found the bodies of 17-year-olds Natalie Henderson and Carter Davis behind a Publix store. Days later, they arrested 20-year-old Jeffery Hazlewood for their deaths. Last week, officials revealed that surveillance video was key in trying to capture Hazelwood.

New information filed with the Roswell Municipal Court shows what other clues investigators obtained during searches. After detectives execute a search warrant, it is protocol for them to make a list of what items they removed from properties and file it with the court clerk's office.

The warrants indicate Hazelwood's grandparents had previously told police they were afraid of him. The new documents detail his bedroom in their house was locked with a dead bolt, and he forbid his grandparents from entering it.

Police searched that bedroom on Aug. 3 and confiscated several items, including two black jackets. The person who killed Henderson and Davis was wearing a black jacket at the time he was seen in surveillance video following the two teens behind a Publix store near Roswell High School.

Police matched the vehicle seen in the surveillance video to one owned by Hazelwood's grandfather. According to the warrants, the vehicle was found parked at Hazelwood's girlfriend's house.

Police also confiscated a pair of boxer shorts, boots, and several electronic items. They also seized a notebook "with writings about being schizo." Police and friends of Hazelwood has said he suffered from schizophrenia and other mental illnesses.

Hazelwood is charged with two counts of murder, two counts each of aggravated assault, sexual battery, identity fraud, and theft. Hazelwood has made several court appearances since his arrest, and could face the death penalty.
