HAYNEVILLE, AL (WSFA) -
Police have charged 39-year-old Alfonso Green with three counts of capital murder.
Something Hayneville Police Chief Kelvin Mitchell says has shaken not only this small town, but the entire county.
"An incident of this nature is not common here and it has everyone in an uproar," Mitchell said.
Like Mary Wright, the mother of Willie Patterson. She reported him missing in December. Authorities say Green kidnapped and murdered him.
"That makes me feel much better now. And then I can go from that conclusion and make sure that my child cause he never harmed anybody," Wright said.
Police found Patterson's skeletal remains last week in a wooded area near Hayneville park.
"You do something in the dark, the good Lord is going to bring everything to light," Wright said.
Police say tips from this close-nit community led to green's capture.
"We believe we have the right man and we are going to investigate to make sure there not any stones left unturned," Mitchell said.
Chief Mitchell says the other two counts are capital murder with arson and capital murder with robbery.
He would not reveal the identify of the other two victims or share details surrounding how they died because he says it may jeopardize the investigation.
"There could be other arrest," Mitchell said.
Green is being held with no bond in the Lowndes County John Hulett Detention Facility.
Chief Mitchell says the Alabama Bureau of Investigation is also handling this case.
Chief Mitchell has spent several hours over the course of several days with those investigators regarding this death investigations.
And since this is still an active investigation, if you have any information, call Hayneville police at 334-548-2128.
