Georgia mother: According to the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office, the husband of a Georgia mother-of-four who had been missing for more than two weeks was detained after officers discovered her death.
Donell Anderson was arrested Friday night in relation to the death and disappearance of Imani Roberson. She left her mother’s home on July 16 and was last seen there in Conyers. Later, some 24 miles distant in the Atlanta region, her car was discovered in pieces and had been set on fire.
Images sent by her relatives to Atlanta-based News affiliate WXIA appeared to show that the scene where her car was discovered was still covered in burned-out debris. Additionally, video from a neighbor’s doorbell camera that was also sent to WXIA by Roberson’s family appeared to show the car pulling out of Roberson’s driveway the night she vanished.
Sheriff Eric Levett announced at a press conference that Anderson was taken into custody at an apartment in Atlanta and charged with felony murder, malice murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm. There will be more arrests, he said.
The sheriff assured reporters that “another arrest will be made” since “this investigation is still underway.
She and her four kids had gone to her mother’s house for a family supper on the day Roberson vanished. According to her relatives and the authorities, Roberson had left with two of her children, who were 3 and 1 month old, to return home.
According to the sheriff, the other two kids, ages 11 and 9, stayed at the grandmother’s home.
Roberson’s mother, Clarine Andujar-White, phoned her daughter many times the following day but she did not return the calls. When she went by the house, no one was there, according to the authorities. On July 17, Andujar-White reported a missing individual.
It has been a “very difficult day” for the family, according to Andujar-White.
“I knew something was wrong when I couldn’t reach Imani almost three weeks ago,” she added. My worst worries came true late last night, and our family is devastated.
Ronald Acklin, Roberson’s father, stated, “This is not the news we wanted to have.”
He sobbed, “I said my goodbyes to my daughter yesterday,” he added.
Anyone with information is still being urged to contact the sheriff’s office.
