Monson back behind bars in Albany

Prime suspect wanted in 2017 brutal attack & robbery of Carol Harper back in Slappey parking lot returns on charges

ALBANY, GA – Albany’s aggravated mugging suspect Jermaine Monson is now back in the Dougherty County Jail.

Monson was located on April 11th and taken to the Madison County Jail without incident.

South Georgia Television News confirmed with the Madison County Florida Sheriff’s Office that the 37-year-old was extradited today back to Dougherty County, on a fugitive warrant.

The warrant pertains to the 2017 mugging of 72 year old Carol Harper.

Surveillance video captured the attack, that left Harper with multiple broken bones and injuries she never fully recovered from before her death.

Monson was held for months for a trial that was never held, due to the lost video. But Dougherty County District Attorney Greg Edwards plans to prosecute Monson now with the lost video, now found.

There has been a bench warrant out for Monson’s arrest since November 15th of last year. Quinlan Parker South Georgia Television News was previously informed by Lisa Harper, Carol Harper’s daughter that Monson was active on social media and even shared on of our previous stories with a sarcastic caption saying, “APD on Monson evidence fumble They doing they best”

We spoke with Lisa by phone after confirming Monson’s recapture and return to Albany.

“I am pleased, I am excited. I’m hoping this will bring closure for my mom, for all of us with my mom not being here. I just hope that this time with the evidence and everything that he does have to serve, and he goes to jail for a long time.” said Harper.

We reached out to talk with the D.A. now that Monson has been detained and are awaiting comment.
