2 Clayton County employees on administrative leave after murder suspect was mistakenly released

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A murder suspect is back in jail after being mistakenly released months ago.

Sheriff Levon Allen said Kaiser Ulrick Suggs was in the Clayton County jail facing aggravated assault charges in Nov. 2022 when he was released.

Union City police told Channel 2′s Candace McCowan that Suggs is back in custody at the Fulton County Jail.

According to Allen, two jail employees were responsible for Suggs’ release and have been placed on administrative leave as this investigation continues.

Allen said jail officials discovered Tuesday that Suggs was not returned to the Fulton County Jail to face murder charges.

Suggs made an Instagram post on Tuesday night saying he was going to be turning himself in and maintaining his innocence.

“Finna turn myself in, they got me [looking] like I did sum wrong...they trying to [label] me as a menace,” he wrote in part.

A short time later, officials confirmed he had turned himself in to Fulton County deputies.


“I have placed Suggs #1 on my top ten most wanted and have activated my entire Fugitive Squad to find Suggs and bring him back into custody,” Allen said before Suggs’ arrest. “Suggs should be considered armed and dangerous and anyone who comes in contact with him should dial 911 immediately.”

According to records from the Fulton County Jail, Suggs was facing three counts of felony murder, first-degree home invasion, murder aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, burglary, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony stemming from a 2021 arrest in Union City.
