The Clay County Sheriff’s Office has released the 911 call made Monday night by suspect Aubrey Lumpkin, who is accused of breaking into a home in Green Cove Springs and holding an elderly couple captive, according to a sheriff’s office report.
Lumpkin, 46, called 911 on Monday to report he wanted to turn himself in, according to an arrest report.
The sheriff's office also says Lumpkin told deputies he was involved in burying a body at a nearby property. The sheriff’s office found potential remains in Green Cove Springs on Friday morning, the sheriff's office announced.
The sheriff’s office found the remains about 10 a.m. at the crime scene where the couple was held captive. The remains were found in a wooded area behind the house and have not been identified. Deputies said the remains have been there for some time. The sheriff’s office is still investigating Lumpkin’s connection to the remains.
On Monday, deputies found the elderly couple bound by duct tape on their arms, legs and faces at a home on County Road 315 in Green Cove Springs. The couple was dehydrated, malnourished, covered in feces and suffering from infections, the report said. The couple was transported to a local hospital.
Lumpkin broke into the home on Saturday night and held the couple captive for two days until his 911 call Monday night. He said he initially fired two rounds from a gun over their heads to scare them. Lumpkin took the couples’ credit cards, got their PIN numbers from them and then withdrew about $3,000 in cash.
Lumpkin told deputies he broke into the victims' residence with a second person to rob them, according to the report. Investigators are still looking for another suspect, according to the sheriff’s office.
Lumpkin is charged with home invasion with a deadly weapon and adult false imprisonment.
During the 911 call, Lumpkin does not identify himself. Here is an excerpt from the call.
The man calling dispatch in the 911 call says: “Hello, how are you doing. First of all, I am a piece of s—. I need medical assistance out here for this elderly couple. I am turning myself in,” the man on the phone tells the dispatcher.
"I've got family, they know me, and I'm turning myself in, and I know the family." And there is chatter in the background that is not audible.
The dispatcher calls fire rescue to dispatch medical help to the residence.
“I don’t want nobody to hurt me. I am saying this for the record,” the man says.
He keeps saying he is turning himself in.
“Was it an assault, sir?” the dispatcher asks
The man is asked if the couple is still breathing.
“Yes, they are breathing. They were just talking,” he replies.
Dispatcher: “Sir, we are on our way. I need your name. What happened to the couple? What did you do to the couple? Are you there?”
The man on the phone does not reply and the call ends.
Lumpkin remains in the Clay County jail on no bond.
