An arrest has been made in connection with the killing of a Georgia school teacher and former beauty queen who went missing 11 years ago, authorities announced Thursday.
Ryan Alexander Duke, 33, has been charged with the murder of 30-year-old Tara Grinstead, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said.

Ryan Alexander Duke Arrested
Ryan Alexander Duke has been arrested in connection with the death of Tara Grinstead, Georgia Bureau of Investigation spokesman J.T. Ricketson said.
Authorities said Duke was arrested Wednesday evening after a tipster came forward with new information this week.
“This gentleman (Duke) never came up on our radar through the investigation,” Ricketson said. Asked if more arrests were possible, he said, “That’s a very good question. Again, we have several more interviews to do.”
Ricketson declined to say how Grinstead and Duke knew each other and would not say if authorities know what became of Grinstead’s body.
Connie Grinstead, the missing woman’s stepmother, told reporters she thanked God “for answered prayers.”
“We always believed that it would be solved,” she said, reading a statement at the courthouse news conference. “We just did not know when.”

WOW … At Town Hall Nancy Pelosi Tells Adopted Woman Its About Choice, ‘Your Mom Should’ve Had The Choice To ABORT You’ (VIDEO)
WOW, WHAT A VILE AND CLUELESS WOMAN …
At a recent CNN town Hall, House Minority leader, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made some bizarre comments to a question from a college student about abortion. The student is a young woman named Brianna Kristyn Roberts who happens to be adopted and tells her story about how she was given the chance to live and thrive. Brianna Kristyn Roberts asked, “Don’t you think everyone needs the ability to thrive and succeed in life?” Pelosi’s response … “You said my mother chose, my mother chose. And we want other people to have … that opportunity to choose as well.” Meaning, Pelosi just said to this woman that she should have had the choice to abort you too. Sick!
Brianna Kristyn Roberts: “I am part of the pro-life generation.I believe that abortion is not the answer for unplanned pregnancy.
“My birth mother was faced with a decision that many women today are facing. Without the means of properly raising a child, she chose the most ethical decision and chose adoption. With her courageous and unselfish decision, I now have the ability to thrive and succeed in life.
“Don’t you think everyone needs the ability to thrive and succeed in life?”
Nancy Pelosi: “You said my mother chose, my mother chose. And we want other people to have … that opportunity to choose as well,”
Man Hunt Continues for Cop Killer Markeith Loyd … Two Police Officers Killes, Master Sgt. Debra Clayton & Deputy Norman Lewis
POLICE LIVES MATTER … MANHUNT CONTINUES FOR COP KILLER …
The search continues for Markeith Loyd, accused of killing Orlando police officer Debra Clayton. The violence started about 7:15 a.m. at the Wal-Mart at John Young Parkway and Princeton Street, when someone spotted Loyd, knew he was wanted for murder and told Orlando police Master Sgt. Debra Clayton, who also happened to be at the store.Master Sgt. Debra Clayton confronted the suspect and was shot dead. Markeith Loyd is considered “armed and extremely dangerous.” and is a suspect in the murder of his pregnant girlfriend. There is a $60,000 reward for help in the capture of this cop killing dirtbag.
Hundreds of law enforcement officers are searching overnight for a fugitive who is accused of killing a cop at dawn on Monday when she tried to chase him down at a Wal-Mart and arrest him.
A second law-enforcement official died in a crash just hours later as officers and deputies scrambled to find the murder suspect.
By Monday evening, officers largely abandoned the apartment complex in northwest Orlando that was the focus of their search for much of the day, and Markeith Loyd, 41, was still at large.
“We are going to bring this dirtbag to justice, and he’s going to jail,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina said.
Loyd has been wanted for murder since his pregnant ex-girlfriend was shot at her front door on Dec. 13.
He has a long criminal history and on Nov. 30 wrote on his Facebook page: “Goals!!!! To be on Americas most wanted.”
UPDATE I: A massive manhunt for Loyd resulted in two motorcycle crashes by Orange County deputies, one fatal.
Deputy Norman Lewis, 35, an 11-year Sheriff’s Office veteran and former football player at the University of Central Florida, was killed 2-1/2 hours after the shooting.
He was traveling south on Pine Hills Road on his motorcycle when he was struck by a van turning left onto Balboa Drive, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
“We’re sad on this day for many reasons,” Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said at a morning news conference at the hospital. “In my 36-year career, this is possibly one of the toughest days for me.”
Prior to Airport Fort Lauderdale Shooting FBI Closed Alaska Investigation … Then Esteban Santiago Goes On Mass Murder Attack … Suspect Told Investigators, He Planned the Attack … Could Face Death Penalty
JUST LIKE WITH SO MANY OF THESE MASS KILLINGS, IT WAS PREVENTABLE … JUST WTF WAS THE FBI THINKING IN DEALING WITH THIS LUNATIC?
According to accounts, the suspect in the Fort Lauderdale, FL airport shooting that left 5 people dead and several more injured told investigators that he planned the attack. 26 year old Esteban Santiago has been charged with federal crimes and could face the death penalty. As per FBI Agent George Piro, Santiago spoke to investigators for several hours after the mass murder attack at the Fort Lauderdale airport where he opened fire with a 9mm semi-automatic handgun that he appears to have legally checked on a flight from Alaska. WHAT!!! You will read below why such astonishment as to how on earth this individual was allowed to possess a gun, let alone legally check it on the plane. Not to mention, Esteban Santiago bought a one way ticket to Florida. Did this not sound off any bells or raise any red flags? Nope, the TSA was too busy checking grandma’s walker and patting down little girls. It does not matter if this was an act of terror or not, how does someone who alerted the notice of the FBI because of insane actions, then be given his gun back, allowed to board a plane with a one way ticket and then allowed to check a gun. Have we completely lost all common sense?
The suspected gunman in an airport shooting rampage in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. — Esteban Santiago, 26, an Iraq War veteran — has been charged with federal crimes and could face the death penalty, the Justice Department announced Saturday night.
Santiago showed signs of violence and what authorities called “erratic behavior” in the months before they said he traveled 4,000 miles from home, loaded a gun in a baggage area and killed five people in some 80 seconds.
“The area was crowded with newly-arrived passengers retrieving their luggage, according to a news release from the Department of Justice. “Santiago started shooting, aiming at his victims’ heads until he was out of ammunition
However, why does there only have to be a terror angle to something in order for a suspect to be considered a danger to the public? Esteban Santiago was a mental case who should have been committed to an insane asylum after being arrested twice for domestic violence and then showing up to an FBI office in Alaka telling agents his mind was being controlled, complaining that the government was forcing him to watch Islamic State videos. AND YOU GAVE THIS LUNATIC HIS GUN BACK, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Investigators said Saturday that Santiago drew frequent police attention for domestic violence in his Alaska home town and twice was arrested within the last year. Two months before the shooting, they said, he was admitted to a mental-health facility after showing up at an FBI field office and telling agents his mind was being controlled, complaining that the government was forcing him to watch Islamic State videos.
Police held his gun for a month, and then gave it back to him, authorities said.
Those sporadic run-ins now raise questions about how Santiago evaded detection as he boarded two flights — checking in a weapon — before he landed at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and allegedly fired at unsuspecting travelers.
Investigators said they were still trying to determine if there was a terrorism motive. A day after the shooting, agents had interviewed more than 100 people, including Santiago, who surrendered after firing all of his ammunition by dropping onto the floor, spread-eagle, near a baggage area when a sheriff’s deputy approached him, according to an FBI affidavit.
