FROM LEFT: Wilson, Vickers and WilliamsIn the early morning hours of July 25, Citrus County deputies were dispatched to a shots-fired call in Crystal River where they discovered a gray-colored Chrysler in the middle of the road at West Cyrus Street and North Reynolds Avenue.

Inside, they found the body of 27-year-old Jamie Seeger of Crystal River, who had been shot to death.

On Wednesday night, Citrus County Sheriff’s Office command staff members made personal contact with Seeger’s mother, Wendy Moore, to notify her that the agency had arrested three individuals responsible for her daughter’s death.

CCSO detectives took Marrio Demetric Williams, 27, of Dunnellon, Lawrence Vickers, 45, of Crystal River and Curtis Wilson, 30, of St. Petersburg into custody on active capital felony warrants for murder in the first degree.

Williams was located and arrested in the South Dunnellon area of Citrus County without incident on the outstanding warrant. Vickers was arrested at the Citrus County Detention Facility, where he already was being held on unrelated criminal charges. With the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service, Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office and St. Petersburg Police Department, Wilson was picked up on the active warrant in Pinellas, where he currently is in custody on the murder charge.

None of the suspects were granted bond.

While Citrus County Sheriff Jeff Dawsy isn’t releasing specific details about the investigation, which still remains open and active, he did say that detectives have been working non-stop on this case since it first happened. In a committed effort to solve this very real “who-done-it” mystery, detectives issued 37 subpoenas and 17 investigative warrants, and also conducted more than 80 interviews, during the course of this investigation which took them to jurisdictions both in Florida as well as out of state.

In truth, suspects were identified early on in the investigation, but crucial evidence and testimony had to be gathered in order to build a solid case.

“This was an extremely difficult and complex investigation” Dawsy said. “And I refused to rush the process and cut corners. Technical investigations such as this one can’t be driven by public opinion or political pressure to make an arrest.”

According to Dawsy, he and his detectives, along with his crime scene technicians, are confident the evidence that has been collected will result in the successful prosecution of those responsible for the murder of Jamie Seeger.
