CSI - SW ATL: Associate Pastor at SW ATL Church Found Monday Fatally Shot at Cascade Road Office

Atlanta - "What's Happenin' in SWAT (SW ATL)..." Did you know... According to Atlanta police, 56-year-old Derek Moses, associate pastor of Providence Missionary Baptist Church in Southwest Atlanta, who also worked as an accountant, was found shot to death at his accounting home office on Cascade Road on Monday.

A co-worker discovered Moses' body shortly before 10 a.m. on Monday at the home office of Moses & Co. Accounting, located at 2009 Cascade Rd. SW, said Atlanta Police spokeswoman Kim Jones.  When the co-worker arrived, they discovered he had multiple gunshot wounds to the head, Atlanta police investigators said.

Moses' blue BMW was missing from the location, but was later found on Montreat Avenue SW, Officer Jones said.

Rev. Dr. Gerald Durley, senior pastor of Providence Missionary Baptist Church in Southwest Atlanta said Moses didn’t show up to read the scripture at church Sunday, but he didn't think anything of it because of the busy tax season.  Moses had been involved with Providence Missionary Baptist Church since he was a teenager and was an associate minister for the last five years.

Police say the investigation into Moses death is ongoing, and they’re looking for witnesses who might know who may have wanted to do him harm.  Officers say they want to talk to anyone who might have seen Moses' BMW leaving his office in the last few days. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-TIPS (8477). You do not have to give your name and you could earn a reward.
