Mall Santa's Horrifying Secret Unearthed
Elwyn Crocker, 50, who was charged with child cruelty and concealing a death in connection with his killings of his children, was working as Santa Claus at the store in Rincon, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
“This guy, the biological father, was a Santa Claus at Rincon Walmart, and these other families who live out here had their kids in his lap,” Ronald Howe, a neighbor, told WTOC.
Officials investigating the disappearance of Mary Crocker, 14, searched the property in Guyton where the girl had lived and discovered two bodies. Autopsies confirmed that one of the bodies was Mary’s while the other body discovered was of her brother Elwyn Crocker Jr., who had not been seen since November 2016.
Stepmother Candice Crocker, 33, Kim Wright, 50, and Wright’s boyfriend, Roy Anthony Prater, 55, were also charged with child cruelty and concealing a death in connection to the children’s killings. They all lived in the same house with Elwyn Crocker.
Effingham County Sheriff is holding all three suspects in the county jail without bond.
