4 sought after man found dead at Atlanta apartment complex  


Dedrell Knox’s body was found lying in a grassy area in front of a northwest Atlanta apartment complex late last month. 

The 41-year-old, who had been shot in the buttocks and back, was “carrying a large sum of cash” at about 3:45 a.m., Atlanta police said. Narcotics were also found in his apartment. 

Now, authorities are searching for four persons of interest seen walking outside the apartment buildings at the Desoto Street complex Aug. 26.

Police have not released a potential motive in the case.
