Meet 40 year old William Thomas Valentine Jr. of Athens, Georgia. Willie took the above mugshot after he violently beat a man with a toilet seat lid.
Yes. A toilet seat. Commode. P*ss Pot.
Valentine is an ex-con who authorities say used the toilet seat lid to bludgeon an Athens man to death early Sunday then kidnapped and later raped a woman who witnessed the attack.
According to the AthensBanner:
He is accused of murdering Alfred Lorenzo Harris, 51, in the victim’s home at Garden Apartments on Spring Court off North Avenue.
Valentine also kidnapped a woman who witnessed the attack, then took her to Madison County and raped her, according to police.
A friend discovered Harris’ body at about noon Sunday, when he brought over some food, police said.
Investigators determined that Harris had been dead at least nine hours, and identified a lid from his apartment’s toilet as the murder weapon, according to police.
They quickly identified Valentine as a suspect and a judge signed a murder warrant late Sunday afternoon.
Valentine has served five stints in state prison, once for an aggravated assault involving a gun in Clarke County, according to the Department of Corrections.
Investigators arrested Valentine shortly before 12:30 p.m. Monday afternoon (Oct. 12th) at his brother’s house in Oglethorpe County.
