COLD CASE - 1989 TUSCALOOSA CO MURDERS CONNECTED TO FL MURDERS At 12:43am on Oct 16, 1989, firefighters responded to a fire at a residence one mile off Interstate 59/20 on AL Hwy 216. The bodies of Acie and Carolyn Worthy were found inside the house. Investigation revealed that both victims had been shot when they returned home from a Sunday night church service where Carolyn Worthy served as choir director. The house was intentionally set on fire in an apparent attempt to destroy evidence. AC Worthy served as an officer at the local VFW post Bessemer. He was known to carry large amounts of cash on his person. One month after the murders in McCalla, investigators learned of the murder of a couple in Graceville Florida. On January 29, 1989, Robert F. McRae, Sr. age 72 and his wife, Katherine P. McRae, age 70 were found murdered in their residence in Graceville Florida. Two ski masks were found near the back door. Mrs. McRae was thumbed cuffed behind her back and both she and her husband had been shot in the head. Upon comparing evidence found at both crimes scenes, it was determined that the AL and FL cases were linked. The McRae case occurred 9 months prior to the Worthy case. If you have any information that may help in this case, call Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit at 205-464-8690 or use the Unit email at Homicide@tuscco.com

***SCAM ALERT***Please note that the Sheriff's Office never calls people on the telephone to solicit money or to warn you of impending arrest if you don't pay money. Scammers are still calling area residents demanding money for alleged missed court dates and for having warrants with our office. This is not the Sheriff's Office. The caller ID may even show the Sheriff's Office phone number, but this too is a scam. Callers use spoofing programs to disguise the number they are calling from and can make it appear they are calling from the Sheriff's Office. Please don't be fooled. Please make your friends and family aware of this scam.

Last night at approximately 11:23pm deputies responded on a 911 call to Bone Camp Road on a report that a female had been struck by a vehicle while sitting in her house at her dining room table. The evidence suggests the vehicle lost control in a curve and struck the corner of the house. The resident of the home was transported to DCH by ambulance. The driver fled the area on foot and an extensive search was conducted with the Sheriff’s Office K9 unit. The suspect was located by a deputy sheriff earlier this morning at a relative’s house.
