The third suspect in the brutal home invasion stabbing death of a tech CEO has been tracked down and apprehended.
Travione Keonte Reynolds, 21, was booked Thursday in Fayette County, Georgia on suspicion of murder in the June 23 slaying of 74-year-old Albert DeMagnus in his suburban lakefront mansion.
Reynolds was arrested by US Marshals some 40 miles away from the crime scene, in a residence in DeKalb County, according to Fayette Sheriff Barry Babb.
DeMagnus’ wife told police she awoke in the early morning hours hearing a disturbance in another part of the home and saw three men near her husband, who was suffering from an apparent stab wound.
One of the men, she said, had a gun and demanded cash, valuables and jewelry.
Two of them, later identified as Jeffery Wallace and Kavion Tookes, jumped into the couple’s gray Lexus sports car and drove away, while the third, Reynolds, left the home on foot.

That’s when the wife called 911, at around 2.30am.
The three men it was reported, broke into a large Fayette County home and killed the 74-homeowner, Albert DeMagnus, the CEO of Computer Management Services, Inc.
Jeffrey Lee Wallace, 22, of Atlanta, and Kavion Wyzeenski Tookes, 21, of Decatur, had been charged with malice murder in the death of Albert Eugene DeMagnus, the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office said.
Tech company CEO, Albert DeMagnus was stabbed to death in his lakefront mansion during a home invasion. His wife was home at the time as well but was unharmed and called 911
Jeffrey Lee Wallace, 22, and Kavion Wyzeenski Tookes, 21, allegedly fled the crime scene in DeMagnus’ gray Lexus but crashed it in a high-speed police chase.
The two suspects were able to elude police on foot from the crime scene, and cops caught one of them using an improvised ‘Trojan horse’ strategy.
When a Lyft driver approached the police perimeter road checkpoint around 4.am to pick up a passenger in the area, cops got a hunch that her fare might be a suspect.
Sheriff Babb happened to drive the same kind of car as the Lyft driver, so he and three deputies loaded in and drove up to the pick-up point.
‘The subject walked all the way up, was about to open the door and get in our vehicle, when we exited and identified ourself as the sheriff’s office,’ Babb told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

He was the CEO of Computer Management Services, an IT contracting firm, according to the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office.
All three suspects in the case are being held without bond on charges of home invasion, armed robbery, and murder.
