King is described as a 20 or 21-year-old Black male, approximately 5-feet-9 inches tall and weighing 133 pounds.

He is considered to be armed and dangerous, according to APD. 

FOX 5 spoke with Olvey's mother, who called her son's killer "a poor excuse for a human." 

"He needs to be in prison forever and never step outside a prison ever again," said Olvey's mom, Autumn Ernst. "I want his mom to suffer, I want her to lose her son," Ernst said. "I want her to have his life taken, so she knows what it feels like. I want her to hurt."

Anyone with information on King's whereabouts or the case is urged to contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta tip line at 404-577-TIPS (8477), online at, or by texting CSA and the tip to CRIMES (274637).
