Former Georgia star football player Ahkil Crumpton has been charged with murder. He reportedly shot and killed a 23 year old gas station employee in Oconee County.
Elijah Wood, 23, was working the overnight shift at the RaceTrac located in the 7900 block of Macon Highway on March 19, 2021, according to Fox 5 in Atlanta, when a masked gunman walked into the store, pointed his handgun at Wood, and pulled the trigger around 1:40 a.m.
The crazy thing is the same gun was linked to two murders. One if Georgia and one in Philadelphia.
After nearly a year of searching, the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office say they were notified in February by the agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms of a ballistic match used in Wood’s murder. According to investigators, the match showed the same gun was used at a homicide Philadelphia after Wood’s murder.
In Athens, Crumpton was a wide receiver for the University of Georgia from 2017 to 2019. He played in 24 total games in his career, according to UGA Athletics. Guess where Crumpton is from? If you guess Philadelphia, Pennsylvania you are correct. The 5’9 wide out will be facing charges that could keep him in prison the rest of his life.
