 #9 On Sheriff Victor Hill’s Top Ten Most Wanted Turns Himself In To The Elite Fugitive Squad

Yesterday morning, Armetrius Amari Terry turned himself in to the elite Fugitive Squad.  The Fugitive Squad had been in contact with Terry’s mother and he was convinced by her to return to Georgia from Cleveland, Ohio, and flew in yesterday.  Terry was wanted out of Clayton County for Aggravated Battery, Cruelty to Children-Causes Excessive Physical or Mental Pain-1st Degree, and Battery-Family Violence.  


On September 18th, 2017, the victim/infant of the assault was in the care of Terry who is the biological father and had been for several hours when the child suffered what appeared to be a seizure.  Mr. Terry contacted the mother of the child, who was at work, and advised her of the situation, stating that the victim was “stiffening up.”  When the mother of the victim returned to the residence, the victim was found to be stiff, with labored breathing.  Additionally, the child’s eyes were locked in a right-facing position. 


The child was then transported by vehicle to the hospital, where it was found that the victim had suffered several brain hemorrhages along with retinal hemorrhages that are consistent with Shaken Baby Syndrome.  The final diagnosis of the victim’s condition was non-accidental trauma.  During the subsequent investigation, it was found that two of these similar incidents transpired within a week of each other with the victim exhibiting the same symptoms.  Both incidents occurred when the victim was alone with Terry for an extended period of time.  Clayton County Police Detectives after a thorough investigation took out the warrants for Terry’s arrest.


Terry is now facing the wall at Georgia’s toughest para-military jail.
