GBI: Updates to brothers found dead in Fitzgerald case could take ‘several months’

More evidence submitted after brothers found dead in Fitzgerald

FITZGERALD, Ga. (WALB) - The bodies of two brothers who were found in Fitzgerald Saturday morning have been identified.

Kevin Kind, 42, was found in the 300 block of Palm Street inside a car wash around 8:30 a.m., according to Todd Crosby, Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) Special Agent in Charge.

When police went to the victim’s residence in the 500 block of Cypress Street around 9 a.m., his brother, Cedrick Kind, 40, was found dead inside the house.

"Both Kevin and Cedric died of gunshot wounds and that was their cause of death,” said Crosby. “No other injures were found associated on the body during autopsy.”

GBI officials are not releasing if they have any suspects.

“We are still receiving information and we’re still running leads at this time. We have transported or will be transporting evidence today or tomorrow to the GBI crime lab to be analyzed for other information to be gained from it,” Crosby said.

Crosby told WALB Tuesday it could be several months before they have any results.

But knowing that no suspects are in custody has some neighbors concerned.

Malik McArthur, 19, lives only a few blocks away from Cypress Street.

"It make me feel very uncomfortable,” McArthur said.

Demetrius King is visiting his grandmother who lives in the area.

“Being observant, neighbors talking to neighbors, you know coming home more,” King said. “I usually don’t come home too much so it got me here more often now and I’ll be vising more. That’s why if I’m home alone, I’ll lock the door and always have my stick with me for protection.”

The family of the Kind brothers declined to comment.

The GBI is working the scene and assisting the Fitzgerald Police Department with the investigation.

Crosby said that anyone with any information is urged to call the GBI at (478) 987-4545 or the Fitzgerald Police Department at (229) 426-5000.
