Wrongful Death Two Bodies Found in Mount Sterling

Two bodies have been found in two different counties in just as many days. State police are working to determine if the two homicides are connected.

Saturday afternoon in Montgomery County, a fisherman found man’s body along Slate Creek. State police have arrested Carla Hunt and Talmadge Branham and charged them with tampering with physical evidence in connection to that man’s death.

According to an arrest citation, Hunt and Branham were with three men at a cabin in Wolfe County. At some point, there was an altercation that ended with one of the men being shot. The group allegedly dropped the body off in Montgomery County, and then Hunt and Branham allegedly took the others back to Lexington and took them to a gentleman’s club.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

The name of the victim hasn’t been released, but investigators say he is from Dayton, Ohio.

The citation says Hunt and Branham then washed blood out of the rental car, before returning it to an Enterprise location.

Now, police have discovered a second body in Wolfe County. The Wolfe County coroner confirms the victim was a female. Her body was found at a private campground off Highway 11 Sunday morning, near Cave Hollow Road in the Slade community. The cause of death hasn’t been determined pending an autopsy in Frankfort.

Missing Person Escaped Inmate Found in Lincoln Co. Neighborhood

Investigators say an escaped inmate was taken back into custody thanks to vigilant neighbors and a swift response from multiple law enforcement agencies.

The inmate, David Hall, was on his way to jail from Garrard County when he escaped in Lincoln County.

Law enforcement officials searched for the inmate in a neighborhood off of Hwy 27 in Lincoln County.

Hall was being taken from the Garrard County Court House to the Lincoln County Regional Jail when he kicked out the back window of the prisoner transport van and escaped.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

“He had come across the handcuff key and he had gotten rid of his jumpsuit and unshackled himself,” explained Deputy Rob Oney with the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies say that neighbors were able to help them pinpoint the escapee’s location.

“People out mowing the yard or sitting on the porch you know pointed us in directions they last saw him running,” said Oney.

Police say Hall forged his way into one home in only a T-shirt and underwear. He demanded the homeowners to give him clothes.

Within thirty minutes, the law caught up with Hall

“He was at a trailer talking to somebody, maybe seeking help or refuge. I knew who he was. I put him in a prone position and cuffed him,” said Major Tony Miracle with the Lincoln County Regional Jail.

Investigators are now trying to figure out how Hall was able to get the key cuffs in the first place.

Hall was in court for Assault and Drug Trafficking charges. He is now facing escapee charges and may face further charges pending investigation.

The man accused in a Laurel County double homicide is pleading not guilty to the charges.

Bradley Lawson was arrested for the murders of Donnie and Sharon Jackson in March of 2015. Family members tell LEX 18 that Lawson showed up at their home that morning to rob them.

Sharon was shot sitting on the couch and Donnie was shot multiple times. Lawson is then accused of setting their house on fire.

Donnie Jackson’s youngest sister, Erma, told LEX 18′s Leigh Searcy that the couple worked hard their entire lives. When they decided to retire, they both wanted to move back to Kentucky from Michigan.

Erma says due to the horrific nature of how Donnie and Sharon died, her family wants prosecutors to seek the death penalty.

Lawson was already in jail facing drug charges when Laurel County deputies charged him with the Jacksons’ murders.

Lawson’s attorney says that deputies arrested the wrong man. He entered a not guilty plea on behalf of his client in a Laurel County courtroom Monday.
