Suspects arrested in death of former Wiregrass anchor’s son

Local News

(ABC) — Two arrests have been made in the investigation into the alleged murder of Sawyer English, the son of former Dothan television and radio personality Mitch English — beloved by many in the wiregrass.

George Watson and Lindsi Mayabb are now suspects in the young man’s death.

“These are two people I have never heard of,” Mitch English said. “I never heard sawyer mention these two names before.”

Edmond police said they got a tip that led them straight to the suspects.

“Someone by the name of George was upset that Sawyer had had a relationship with a woman named Lindsi,” said Jenny Wagnon with the Edmond Police Department.

Police said that after seeing all the news coverage of Sawyer English’s murder, the two fled to Florida.

That’s where officers used a sting operation to confront Lindsi Mayabb through an escort service.

“She admitted that George was enraged of the relationship she had had with Sawyer,” Wagnon said. “He told Lindsi he was going to shoot Sawyer.”

Police said George Watson demanded that she drive him to Dawyer’s home so he could kill him.

“She stayed in the car,” Wagnon said. “George said that he had shot Sawyer through the window.”

The arrests now bring a bit of relief to Mitch English.

“To know that they are looking out for my little boy brings a little bit of satisfaction to me,” he said.
