By JEFF THOMPSON Managing Editor The Tuskegee Police Department is continuing to investigate the al- leged beating death of a Tuskegee man though three have been charged in connection to the crime. Saturday, March 12 at approxi- mately 2:24 p.m Tuskegee police received a call reporting a domes- tic disturbance at Capricorn Apartments on West Martin Luther King Highway in Tuskegee. After responding to the 700 building, officers were met at the apartment door by Je ica Ann Frazier, 23, of Tuskegee, who re- ported that she and her male friend, Wilbur Lewis Crymes, 54, also of Tuskegee, had been in a physical altercation. Tuskegee Police Chief Lester Patrick said authorities found Crymes in the bedroom o the apartment unresponsive. Officers called in the Tuskegee Fire De- partment and Care Ambulance Service, but efforts to revive Crymes were unsuccessful. He Jessica Frazier" Jermaine Frazier Donte Ray was pronounced dead at the scene by Macon County Coroner Hal Bentley. Patrick said after investigating further, authorities determined other participants may have been involved. The next day, March 13, police arrested Jermaine Contrelle Frazier, 26, of Thskegee, the nephew of Jessica Ann Frazier. Both were charged Saturday with murder. Further investigation revealed another participant may have been involved and the Tuskegee Police Department was joined by the Macon County Sheriff's De- partment, the U.S. Marshals and Kilby Correctional facility's dog tracking team on Sunday, March 14 in a successful manhunt. Patrick said authorities located and arrested Donte Lamar Ray, 26, of Notasulga and charged him with murder, adding that Ray had outstanding warrants and was considered a fugitive from justice who had been evading arrest. All those charged are being held in the Macon County Detention Center, each on a $100,000 bond. Patrick said the incident is still under investigation and would not rule out further arrests.

Maggie B's is named after Smith's mother who died more than a decade ago. She opened the restaurant in Notasulga after Taliaferro's Restau- rant in Tuskegee, a popular buffet'-style restaurant where she served as head chef and manager, was closed by the owners in May 2009. Smith considered a move to Shorter to cook at 'Jeter's Diner when she closed her business in No- tasulga, but the day before she intended to start there she received a call from PB's owner Willie Streeter. Streeter offered Smith a place to put Maggie B's in Tuskegee. Smith said she was thrilled, but had a problem at first with the location. She worried that the establishment's status as a nightclub would run off certain clientele. However, in the little time she's been open in the location, she's found that fans of her food will come just about anywhere to eat it. "All I know is I made a good move," she said as she tossed hamburger pat- ties on a grill outside the restaurant. "I'm just glad and I'm sure this is going to work. "I sincerely appreciate Terrence Richards and Willie Streeter (owners of PB's Blues Bar) for making this possible." Maggie B's is open Sun- day-Friday during lunch.
