COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - It has been more than 17 years since a Columbus man was murdered inside his own home and now police have arrested a man they believe in responsible.
Woolfolk was last seen alive on July 16, 2003 shortly before midnight as he left Coach’s Corner Sports Cafe located on Gentian Blvd.
Investigators obtained a warrant for the arrest of Alvin Shane Barfield in December 2020. He was arrested in Myrtle Beach, S.C. this morning.
Columbus Chief of Police Freddie Blackmon did not comment on what evidence led investigators to developing Barfield as a suspect and later charging him.
“Our ongoing partnerships with federal, state, and local agencies have, once again, led to outstanding results,” said Myrtle Beach Chief of Police Amy Prock. “Our city is safer today, and Mr. Barfield will be held accountable for his actions, thanks to the hard work and dedication of police officers in South Carolina and Georgia.”
Barfield is currently being held in the J. Reuben Long Detention Center in Conway, S.C. where he awaits extradition to Columbus.
