Court documents have revealed new information about the investigation into the murders of two teenagers in Roswell. According to Roswell Police reports, officers had visited the home where the 20-year-old suspect, Jeffrey Hazelwood, lived several times over the past few years.

In a police report from February 2015, Hazelwood was identified as the suspect in the theft of a rifle from his grandfather's gun case. 

In another report from 2013, Hazelwood's grandparents told officers their grandson, who was 16 at the time, stole knives and a sword from their gun safe.  The report does not identify the teen by name, but says that the teen told his grandmother "he was going to blow and people were going to get hurt."

Hazelwood is charged with murdering Carter Davis and Natalie Henderson, both 17-years-old.

In court documents obtained by FOX 5, investigators said Hazelwood followed the teens behind a Roswell Publix on Woodstock Road and shot each of them in the head during the early morning hours of August 1.  

According to the arrest warrants, after the shootings, Hazelwood took jumper cables from Davis' vehicle and removed Henderson's debit card from her wallet which was inside her pocket inside her vehicle.

Arrest warrants also state that Hazelwood used Henderson's debit card at the Flash Foods gas station on Highway 92 in Woodstock.

Hazelwood has been charged with two counts each of murder, aggravated assault, and theft by taking. Hazelwood is also charged with possession of a firearm during commission of a felony as well as financial transaction card fraud, which investigators said stems from Hazelwood's use of Henderson’s debit card at an area gas station after the murders.

Hazelwood remains behind bars at the Fulton County Jail with no bond.  According to one of the court documents under "Release Recommendation" it states "Disciplinary Lockdown."

The suspect's next court appearance is scheduled for August 19 at the Fulton County Courthouse.

Investigators would not release many details surrounding the arrest of Hazelwood or his connection to the two teens. Roswell Police Chief Rusty Grant said he could not release a motive because it speaks to the heart of the murder case, but said all the evidence officers have collected so far points to Hazelwood’s involvement.
