Recent Cairo grad dies in wreck

THOMASVILLE — A young man who graduated from Cairo High School Thursday night died Sunday afternoon in a two-vehicle wreck in Grady County.

Kedric Bell, whose 19th birthday was Monday, was a passenger in a 1981 Chevrolet Monte Carlo driven by his cousin, Shaunta Dismuke, 18, of Cairo.

Bell, Dismuke and a friend, whose name was not available from Georgia State Patrol, were returning from fishing at Vada when the wreck occurred on Ga. 112 south of Bond Road about 3 p.m.

Sandra Green, the driver’s mother and Bell’s aunt, said the teens were inseparable, more like brothers than cousins.

“They were real close,” Green said. “When you saw one, you saw the other.”

Dismuke, who suffered scratches climbing out of a window of the wrecked car, was with Bell’s mother Monday afternoon.
