Georgia Democrat congressional candidate arrested for allegedly murdering campaign treasurer

Kellie Lynn Collins, a 30-year-old Democrat who dropped out of Georgia’s 10th Congressional District race for personal reasons, has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting death of her former campaign treasurer.

Collins was arrested on Wednesday by the McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office in the death of 41-year-old Curt Jason Cain of Aiken, Georgia, according to the Aiken Standard and the UK Daily Mail. Cain was listed as the treasurer in Collin’s political action committee.

Local law enforcement began looking into the suspicious death on Old Powderhouse Road in Aiken County, Georgia on Tuesday, the Aiken Standard said.

The Aiken Standard and the DailyMail further reported:

Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton explained in a news release that Cain died from a gunshot wound on August 4. His death – due to loss of blood – was ruled a homicide, the coroner continued.

Cain was found in his home on Tuesday after deputies responded to a wellness check.

His blue Subaru Legacy was found to have been missing from the scene.

After she was identified as a suspect, Collins turned herself in to authorities.

‘Without the assistance of McDuffie County Sheriff’s Office, the Aiken County Coroner’s Office and the exceptional work of the investigators of the Aiken County Sheriff’s Office, this arrest would not have been possible,’ Aiken County Sheriff Michael Hunt said.

‘We hope this will bring some closure to the family of the victim.’

Cain was pursuing his MBA at USC Aiken, said Chancellor Dr. Sandra Jordan.

‘Curt was a member of the third on-campus MBA cohort and was on the verge of completing the program next week,’ Jordan said. ‘According to School of Business faculty, Curt was one of the top students in his class and had a promising future ahead of him.’

The man was also listed as a member of the Aiken County Democratic Party, according to Elizabeth Foy, representative with the party.
