Husband Arrested in Connection with Mother’s Disappearance and Death

Imani Roberson, a 30-year-old mother of four, was last seen leaving her mother’s residence on July 16. Her sudden disappearance and subsequent death have been linked to her husband, Donell Anderson, according to Rockdale County, Georgia, law enforcement officials. Anderson was apprehended on murder charges on Friday evening, as announced by Rockdale County Sheriff Eric Levett during a Saturday press briefing. The investigation into Roberson’s disappearance and death is still underway, with Levett hinting at the possibility of additional arrests, though no further details were provided.

Ronald Acklin, Roberson’s father, expressed his grief over the tragic news, stating, “It’s not the news that we wanted, but I’m happy that we can hold them accountable.” Roberson had spent her last known evening having dinner with her mother, Clarine Andujar-White, and her four children. After dinner, she took her youngest children, aged one month and three years, home, leaving the older two with their grandmother.

Roberson and her mother were in regular contact, making it unusual when Andujar-White didn’t hear from her daughter the following day. Concerned, she visited Roberson’s home, only to find it empty. This prompted her to report her daughter missing. The two younger children were later found safe, though the details of their recovery have not been disclosed by the authorities.

Earlier in the week, Roberson’s white Mazda SUV was discovered 30 miles from her last known location. The vehicle had been set on fire from the inside, with no trace of Roberson. A subsequent search of Roberson’s home revealed traces of blood. Investigators later found an unidentified body, believed to be Roberson’s due to matching descriptions and tattoos. The location of the body and cause of death remain undisclosed.

Anderson was arrested in an Atlanta apartment on Friday, with the assistance of a SWAT team. He faces charges of felony murder, malice murder, aggravated assault, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Sheriff Levett indicated that additional charges may be forthcoming. He urged anyone with information about the case to come forward, warning that withholding information could lead to legal consequences.

Andujar-White, still grappling with the loss of her daughter, thanked the public for their continued prayers and support, stating, “We thank you for your continued prayers and support as we work to care for Imani’s beautiful boys without a mother.”
