    Information pertaining to Caleb Nathaniel Smith’s Missing Person’s and death case:

    Some were asking how Caleb’s car was found at the Flying J in January of 2020. Here are some photos of location and how it was found. When Caleb went missing on 01/16/2020, his car was found backed in, left unlocked with his cell phone (battery removed) locked in glove compartment, which all of his family found very strange. Caleb never went anywhere without his phone. He loved to listen to music and keep in touch with his family and friends. Once we reported Caleb Smith as a Missing person to Gordon County Sheriff’s office on 01/16/2020, the Detective working my son’s Missing Person’s case, stated that there was “No Foul Play” The Gordon County Sheriff’s office did not process Caleb’s car. There was no kind of forensics done. For the next few weeks searches were done for Caleb. It wasn’t until a property owner located 5 miles from the Flying J called in a brush fire on his property that Caleb’s body was found. The fire was later found out to be Arson. This information was never disclosed to the family by the Sheriff’s office, I had to do my own digging to find that information out. All of Caleb’s family found it very strange that his death was basically ruled as a methamphetamine drug overdose, all though he was found completely nude (his clothes nor his shoes weren’t found near his body) in fact never found. The coroner stated that he felt like someone at that Flying J gave him some drugs and that he was high on drugs and walked himself out to that property to lay down in a body of water to cool off because he was hot. In January weather. The coroner also stated that he felt like Caleb had been out on that property those entire two weeks that he was a Missing person. Once Caleb’s toxicology reports came back, it was pretty much an open and closed case for him. So if anyone ever is asking me, do I think there was foul play? Yes, absolutely. What exactly happened at that Flying J?! We don’t exactly know due to a lack of security surveillance in their parking lot. A lot of unanswered questions. I pray to know the full truth someday. In this lifetime or the next.

    Note: if you notice his death certificate it clearly states that he had only been out there hours. Not weeks.

    I misspoke. They didn’t know each other according to another article.

    Mrs. Arrington, I’m sorry for your loss. It’s unfortunate that your son’s passing was determined to be overdose. This is new to me. I just learned about this a few days ago. I believe that him having been found naked should give law enforcement some pause in re the cause of death. It’s very much possible that he might have been kept naked and he managed to get away, and that the amount of drugs he consumed was enough for the killer to know that he wouldn’t survive the dose. Two teens don’t just disappear together and one runs away naked leaving the other behind unless he had good reason to do so. Especially if they partook in that type of recreational activity together. It’s not logical for couples who do drugs together.

    I wonder if law enforcement requested video footage, if available, from Interstate Truck Wash, which is only 5 minutes away from the Flying J, and en route to where is body was found. In high traffic areas, especially in combination with over-the-road drivers, there is a high likelihood that some sicko may have crossed their paths and took advantage of them.

    Georgia residents should unite and ask lawmakers to create a law whereby cadaver dogs could be walked at any truck stop in Georgia without a search warrant, and every truck stop must have cameras installed inside and around parking lots near the interstate, and at gas stations where OTR truckers gas up, and at locations where drivers wash or get their trucks washed.

    I’m small towns like these, drug use will not stop. It will only increase. There’s a lack of activities for young people. And they think sex, drugs, and crime are recreational activities.

    Law enforcement should ping every tower their phone connected to and phone near them when they were in that area. It’s really unfortunate. Residents in the areas where this young man and his girlfriend was found should give law enforcement access to investigate anywhere LEO think it would help.

    I think trafficking is an issue. I think someone stripped him and drugged him. Maybe too much and he OD’d. It’s too coincidental to Keeslyn and finding clothes. Someone at that store may be part of it. I have been watching this case close and it’s too coincidental.

    I have a YouTube channel and I bring awareness to missing people and unresolved cases. I would love to help you get media action to your son and his case. Keeslyn Roberts family friend reached out to me and i do believe there is a lot connected and that this was not just a drug overdose and that the police failed both of your families. i don’t believe your son or their daughter was just a drug user or that they just started acting odd.
    i only mean to help..

    Thank you for sharing information about my son Caleb Smith. His story deserves to be heard. Too many conflicting details about his disappearance and death and not enough help from local police to properly investigate his death. They were too quick to rule as a self afflicted, “Drug overdose.”
