Sade Catori Davidson, 24, of Shoemaker Road near West Point turned herself in at the sheriff’s de-partment Jan. 14 on murder and kidnapping warrants, not long after an alert had been posted for her arrest, sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Chad Mann said.
Davidson had been an occasional substitute teacher at two Troup County public schools from September to December, and “neither school registered any complains regarding her performance,” school system spokeswoman Catherine Holmes said Thursday.
“As with all substitute teachers, prior to working she completed a four-hour, state-mandated training program and submitted to a criminal background check, which came back clear,” Holmes said.
Arrested earlier on the same charges were Kelly Lavar Stephens, 32, of Valley, Ala.; Arthur Demartino Barrett, 20, of West Point; and Toray Dontez Porter, 23, of LaGrange. They’re all being held without bond pending a hearing.
A fifth suspect, Daniel Lee Allen, 31, lived in Troup County at one time, but his whereabouts are unknown, Mann said Thursday, adding, “Until he gets in our custody, we can’t go into details of the case and what part each one played” or speculate on a motive.
Louder’s bullet-riddled body was found in his car on Smokey Road in Troup County on the morning after the kidnapping, during which is girlfriend and 8-year-old daughter were tied up with extension cord and threatened with guns.
