Covington man arrested, vehicles found in connection with Rossana Delgado murder investigation

The vehicles of two suspects and the one Delgado was driving were also found

COVINGTON, Ga. — Authorities have arrested a Covington man in connection with their ongoing investigation into the murder of a metro Atlanta mother of two.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) announced on Friday that 28-year-old Calvin Harvard of Covington had been arrested and charged with tampering with evidence and theft by receiving stolen property in connection with the Rossana Delgado murder case. The announcement added that additional charges are likely against Harvard and additional arrests expected.

Harvard is not one of the four suspects initially named by the GBI and it's unclear if he was the fifth previously unidentified person they were looking for.
