The family of murdered Clark Atlanta University student Alexis Crawford is urging a Fulton County judge to deny bond for one of their daughter's killers.

The 21 year old Crawford was killed in 2019. Her body was found in a park along Columbia Drive in DeKalb County on November 8, 2019, a week after she was reported missing.

Crawford's boyfriend Barron Brantley is charged with her murder along with the young woman's roommate, Jordyn Jones.

Brantley is seeking to be released on bond. He has a hearing scheduled on Friday, March 24, 2023.

Tammy Crawford, mother of Alexis Crawford writes in a statement: “On behalf of my entire family and with all my heart, I plead with the Fulton County Superior Court to deny the bond request of Barron Brantley." The statement continues "the monsters that murdered Alexis should not ever get out of jail - under any circumstances. I cannot imagine a judge finding it just or safe to grant Barron the freedom to walk around and be with his family while Alexis lies in a lonely grave."

Brantley and Jones have pleaded not guilty to several charges in connection to Crawford's death including murder, false imprisonment, and concealing a death.
