CPD releases report on robbery

involving homicide suspect

Cartersville police on Wednesday released the report involving a robbery by sudden snatching allegedly involving a suspect taken into custody Tuesday for murder.

Richard Clayton Flowers Jr., a 17-year-old Douglasville teen, turned himself into police Tuesday afternoon and was charged with felony murder and two counts of armed robbery. Flowers was charged in connection with the shooting death of 28-year-old Randall “RJ” Statler between 7 and 8 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, 2012.

Earlier in the day, police say Flowers snatched a woman’s purse around 12:30 p.m. the same day at the Dollar General, 104 Market Square, and fled on foot. The victim and store employees gave chase, with Flowers dropping the purse and fleeing toward Johnson Street. Nothing was taken from the purse.

Lead investigator David Bojczuk said during an interview that, based on statements, officials feel comfortable the confrontation that left Statler dead stemmed from an attempted robbery.

“Well, we know for sure that their statements — the suspects’ — that robbery was the key to that,” he said. “During the day, there was motive [for the suspects] to rob someone and [Statler] was at the wrong place at the wrong time. They were hurting for money.”

In that case, police are unsure what, aside from a cellphone, Flowers and the second suspect, Brettney Anwarr Moore, took.
