Court document reveals new details about alleged doctor murder

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

"I would encourage anyone to steer away online conversations because you really don't know who you're talking to," said Richmond County Sheriff's Sgt. Shane McDaniel.

Good advice after what we uncovered in an affidavit filed with a Richmond County judge.

We previously told you about police finding the body of Dr. Charles Mann in a South Augusta creek. Investigators said Glenn Riggs strangled the doctor. He faces murder charges.

According to the affidavit, Mann and Riggs had communicated online and had arranged a meeting. What Mann didn't know, according to the document, was that Riggs had intents of robbing him.

The affidavit also describes a message the suspect allegedly sent to a friend over social media, that read, "I'm really gone for a long time...I killed a man...and the law is on to me."

The document was filed by a Richmond County investigator to obtain a search warrant for Riggs' computer. Deputies aren't commenting on the specifics of the case, but said online meetings resulting in a more sinister crime are becoming more common.

"I spent six years working electronic crimes and in a number of cases where people have basically been victimized," added McDaniel.
