When officials finally stopped the vehicle, Crockett turned in his son, where officials were able to take the child somewhere safe. It then took nearly 6 hours for Crockett to turn himself in.
The suspect, Caesar Crockett, was wanted by authorities in Georgia after he is accused of killing the boy’s mother, stepfather and sister.
