Private Detective: Accused Scammer Back in KY

A man wanted for allegedly scamming people out of money in more than half a dozen counties is back in a Kentucky jail after being extradited from Oklahoma.

For two years, Randal Long has been serving time in Oklahoma after he was arrested for stealing heavy duty equipment there.

“We had entered him as wanted, basically in 2014, and didn’t know where he was at till we received a call from Oklahoma police,” said Chief Deputy Allen Peel.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

Long was wanted in Kentucky for a parole violation stemming from a string of scams in 2011. Long is suspected of targeting people in Jessamine, Casey, Russell, Pulaski, Garrard, Boyle, and Washington counties.

“He made a trail through central Kentucky of taking money from elderly, mostly elderly victims, and promising to do work and not returning to come back to do the work,” said Peel.

One of his victims, a Jessamine County Korean War veteran, spoke with LEX 18 in 2011 after losing nearly $1,500 in the scam.

“He called me for the last few years, really wanting justice,” said Peel.

The man never got the justice he wanted. He passed away in April.

“My victim was very adamant on seeing justice to be done. We still think the ends of justice needed to be done by transporting him back to Kentucky so he can face our charges, along with the other counties’ charges,” said Peel.

Wrongful Death Body Found in Burned Out Trailer

Deputies from the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office received a tip that a body was inside of a burned out trailer south of Burnside.

They found the crime scene inside of the camper trailer off US 27. The death is being investigated as a homicide.  According to Major Jeff Hancock, It appears that perpetrators attempted to conceal the crime by intentionally setting fire to the camper trailer.

“We do know that it’s a homicide. And, whoever did it tried to conceal what they had done by setting the place on fire,” Maj. Hancock stated. “I’m sure they did it in an attempt to cover up any kind of evidence or anything like that. But, it didn’t work.”

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Thomas Stevens, a nearby neighbor of the man who was killed, told LEX 18 News his friend deserves justice.

“He liked being around people. He came up here… probably every other night and ate supper with us. He didn’t deserve nobody to hurt him.”

While the family of the deceased man continues to learn about the crime, Stevens mentioned that he would be sending prayers their way during the investigation process.

“I don’t know how his family is going to handle it, but it’d be hard if I had lost mine,” Stevens added. “May God bless his family. You know, they’re going to need some help.”

At this time, the name of the deceased has not been released pending notification of the next of kin. Major Hancock told LEX 18 News that the man’s name could be released Thursday morning.

If you have information about this case, please contact the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office at (606) 678-5145, the Somerset Police Department at 606-678-5176, the Kentucky State Police at 606-878-6622 or any other law enforcement agency that you may choose.
