Murder suspect was driving slain man's car when captured, police say
Published 12:21 p.m. CT Jan. 9, 2020



DAVENPORT, Ia. A man suspected of killing a 74-year-old Davenport resident was driving the resident's car when police spotted and then arrested him, court records say.

Charlie Gary III, of Davenport, is charged with murder, robbery and burglary. Scott County court records don't list the name of an attorney who could comment for him. He was arrested Wednesday. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 17

A criminal complaint says Gary, 19, admitted breaking into the home of Robert Long, intending to steal Long's car. Gary told investigators that he strangled Long and then drove away in the car.

Long's body was found Tuesday.

Teen charged in death of 74-year-old Davenport man is accused of similar crimes in Rock Island County

Editor's Note: This story contains some strong language.

DAVENPORT, Iowa -- The 19-year-old accused of killing 74-year-old Robert Long, and stealing his car, also has an active warrant in Rock Island County.

Officials say Charlie Gary III stole another elderly man's car and flat-screen TV, along with hitting the man over the head with that TV and a lamp on October 27, 2019.

He is facing charges of theft, robbery and aggravated battery in this past incident.

Davenport police say that in the murder investigation of Bob Long, he and Gary knew each other. Police haven't revealed the nature of their relationship.

Long's neighbors, Connie and Steve Kindig, say they haven't noticed anything strange recently at their neighbor's home. When they found out about Long being strangled to death for his car, it made them feel sick to their stomachs.

"Why in the hell is somebody beating up a goddamn 74-year-old man that never did anything to anybody," Steve says.
