Magnet fisherman catches possible key evidence in murders


Bud and June Runion, left, were allegedly killed by Ronnie “Jay” Towns in 2015. A magnet fisherman in April 2024 reeled in a possible murder weapon along with the Runions ID, credit cards and phone, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said. (Runion: Facebook; Towns: WAGA/YouTube)

The catch may not have been a treasure to the magnet fisherman, but it was priceless to the detectives investigating a double murder in 2015.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has been investigating the murders of 69-year-old Bud Runion and his 66-year-old wife, June Runion, since Jan. 26, 2015. The couple traveled about three hours from their Cobb County home to Telfair County to buy a 1966 Ford Mustang after seeing an ad on Craig’s List. However, there was no car, and they were instead robbed and murdered, police said. Cops arrested Ronnie “Jay” Towns, who allegedly set up the deal. He’s still awaiting trial nine years later.
