BAIL DENIED FOR MAN CHARGED WITH MURDERING TWO TEENS
A Dale County judge denied bail for Coley McCraney, who is suspected of murdering a pair of 17-year olds in Dothan in 1999.
Investigators believe McMcraney shot and killed J.B. Beasley and Tracie Hawlett and put their bodies in the trunk of a car in Ozark. According to police, the Northview High School graduates were headed to a party when they got lost, stopped for directions and were not seen again until their bodies were discovered the next morning.
Their case had been cold for almost 20 years until investigators linked their deaths to McCraney using genetic genealogy techniques on crime scene DNA.
