His Name's Shaun Hamblen: White 22-Year-Old Male Abducted/Murdered in 65% Black Memphis By 2 Black Males

MEMPHIS, Tennessee - Police have charged the 2nd suspect who was in custody in connection with the disappearance of Shaun Hamblen.  

Deeric Walton, 22, has been charged with 4 counts of "convicted felon in possession of a handgun" and possession of a controlled suspect with intent to sell.  

Walton was detained Thursday, along with Alfonzo Amos, in connection with Hamblen’s abduction and killing. Police haven't charged Walton with murder, but they said it's related to the investigation.  

Amos, 21, admitted earlier to "taking part" in his disappearance and that he was shot and killed. Amos was arrested and is being charged with 1st degree murder in connection to Hamblen’s death, according to a police affidavit.  

Amos and Walton were both charged in relation to the disappearance of Hamblen -- a man who was last seen leaving the LA Fitness in East Memphis on November 29.  

Hamblen's car was found that day, but nearby security footage showed him getting into a Ford Focus. Police received information that the Focus was parked in the 1300 block of Michigan.  

When officers arrived, they located a gray 2009 Ford Focus, but Hamblen was nowhere to be found.  

As the investigation progressed, Amos and Walton, who police believe were in the Focus when Hamblen was last seen, were identified.  

According to a police affidavit, Amos admitted to taking part in Hamblen’s disappearance, taking "several items of value" from him and that he was shot multiple times.  

Officers located Amos in the 1700 block of Edgeburg Lane Wednesday and placed him in custody.  

Investigators didn't specify what Amos' motive was behind the disappearance. Amos is being charged with 1st degree murder and especially aggravated robbery.  

Police then received information that a body was found in the 3600 block of McDuff, that's a residential area more than 10 miles away from where the car was located.  

A body was found on the property, but the identity hasn't been released by police.
