DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

A search warrant revealed new details in the August 24th, double murder at the Decatur Krystal restaurant.

In the warrant, Decatur Police said they learned while Jordaan Creque, 21, was at Decatur General Hospital with cuts and bruises, he told the staff he had been tortured and forced to participate in the murder.

He changed his story and admitted he wasn't tortured and killed two employees when police questioned him.

Creque told Decatur investigators he stopped at the drive thru window and asked manager Jeff Graff to use the phone. Graff recognized him because Creque also worked at the restaurant. Graff let him in and two other men rushed into the business and subdued Graff and Jesse Aguilar.

According to the warrant, Creque forced Graff to open the safe at gun point and took cash. The warrant went on to say he forced his two co-workers into a cooler and fatally shot them.

Creque then told police Ezekial Gholston helped him with the crime. Gholston admitted to investigators he knew Creque had a gun and was the lookout.

Cassandra Eldred gave a statement to police. She told them she provided the car and drove them to the restaurant. After she learned the two employees were shot she took $200 cash from Creque.

The affidavit also said Creque later admitted to police that he was a willing participant.

All three face two counts of capital murder. All three are expected to see a Morgan County judge on Wednesday morning.
