A former Georgia congressional candidate was arrested this week and charged with the murder of her former campaign staffer.
Kellie Lynn Collins, who ran as a Democrat in Georgia’s 10th congressional district, was charged with murder after police found 41-year-old Curt Cain fatally shot inside of his home in Aiken County, South Carolina on Tuesday, the Augusta Chronicle reported.
Police found Cain after they were called to the home to do a wellness check, according to WRDW-TV.
“I didn’t think anything like this could happen,” Clayborn Thigpen, her former campaign manager, told the Chronicle, adding he had not spoken to them in a few months.
Aiken County is located near the Georgia border.
