Walmart Santa Charged With Murder After Kids Found Buried in His Backyard
A former Walmart Santa in Georgia is charged with murder, one month after police found the bodies of his two teenage kids buried in his backyard.
Elwyn Crocker Sr., 50—along with four of his family members—have been jailed on child cruelty charges since officers made the gruesome discovery during a welfare check at Crocker’s mobile home in Guyton. It was five days before Christmas.
Deputies with the Effingham County Sheriff’s Office arrived at Crocker’s residence acting on a tip that 14-year-old Mary Frances Crocker was missing and feared dead. During the visit, relatives told investigators that Mary had gone to live with her biological mother in South Carolina, but according to police, their stories didn’t add up.
