An Atlanta homicide suspect’s identical twin is surprised by accusations that his brother killed a man.
“I know he isn’t the type of person to do that,” Jessie Stewart told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday.
Stewart’s brother, 34-year-old James B. Stewart, was arrested Monday on accusations that he shot and killed Doug Perry of suburban Denver on July 3 at a BP station at 3260 Donald Lee Hollowell Parkway.
Perry’s friend, Jay Holden, said Perry was a horse owner and was likely returning from a farm he owned in Alabama via Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
Holden said Perry had stopped at the BP to refuel his rental car before returning it and boarding his flight home,
and suggested that the confrontation with James Stewart may have been the result of a robbery that Perry resisted.
