Person of interest identified in death of model shot while driving

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — Clayton County police say they have a person of interest in the death of model Kelsey Quayle.

Quayle, 28, died after being shot while driving to work on Upper Riverdale Road on October 8 at around 7 a.m., police said.

Channel 2's Lori Wilson was in Clayton County, where police released surveillance video Thursday on their Facebook page of a man they consider a person of interest.

In the video, a man is captured knocking on the door of a MARTA bus. Police say he followed the bus, got out of his car and knocked on the door. When the driver didn't open the door, he got back in his vehicle and followed the bus.


Police say they now believe that he then may have crossed paths with Quayle.

"In the video, we can see where Ms. Quayle comes down the road and has to make an adverse action, possibly to try to avoid the person in the lane of traffic," Capt. Scott Stubbs with the Clayton County Police Department said. "Maybe this gentleman was upset with some sort of traffic incident."

Police said the man wore a bandana and had the word "hustle" on his shirt. They said they are also looking for the car he was driving, which they believe is a gray or light-colored sedan with a missing hubcap or donut tire on the right rear.

Police are not calling the man a suspect but said they need to speak to him because they believe he has information that can help them solve Quayle's murder.

Quayle, who was from California, had only lived in Atlanta for two months when she was killed
