Moonshine distillery found during Alexander search
by Wes Mayer
During the search for Eleanor Alexander, the missing 78-yearold, last weekend, investigators with the Coweta County Sheriff's Office discovered something they weren't expecting.
Around 6 p.m. on Saturday, Coweta County investigators John Curtis and Jason Fetner came across a moonshine distillery in the backyard of the home at 391 Providence Church Road.
The moonshine distillery was set up to fill a beer keg with illegal alcohol, and was situated in the open behind the home. Nine marijuana plants were also discovered growing in pots around the yard. The investigators seized the still and the marijuana plants.
The residence belongs to William Reeves Chatham, 30, who apparently fled the area and has not been located yet.
Chatham now has outstanding felony warrants in Coweta for the possession and manufacture of marijuana and the manufacture of distilled spirits with the intent to distribute.
Chatham also has outstanding warrants for charges in Carroll County, according to authorities.
