BIRMINGHAM, AL -
Two men were arrested and charged with capital murder of 25-year-old Gary Anthony Cade, who was reported missing by his family on June 20.
Markus Timothy Curry, 21, was arrested June 25 and charged with capital murder. Kendarius Deandre Butler, 19, was arrested this morning and also charged with capital murder.
Both are being held without bond in the Jefferson County Jail.
The arrests were a result of an investigation with multiple leads involved.
On June 20, the family reported that they had not seen Cade in about three weeks and was described by family as a transient who was seen regularly in the neighborhood.
Deputies developed information regarding Cade and concurred that he may be dead and his body could be in a creek that flowed underneath Alabama Hwy 269. Deputies searched the location by foot, boat, and helicopter and no sign of Cade had been found.
According to Chief Deputy Randy Christian, detectives got information that led them to the 4000 block of Gildersleeve Road on June 25, where the found a body in a wooded area that was later identified as Cade.
Detectives say Cade had been riding in a car with two men he knew from around the neighborhood. Cade meddled in their drug deal, so they robbed him, shot him and drove him to the bridge on Gildersleeve Road and threw his body over the side.
"We are certain we got the right two people," Christian said.
