Private Detective: Boone County Deputies Arrest Hatchet Wielding Suspect

Deputies in Boone County arrested a masked, hatchet-wielding teen accused of breaking into a McDonald’s and threatening employees early Sunday morning.

Deputies say Blake Myers, 19, broke into the McDonald’s on Centennial Circle in Burlington around 4:30 a.m. Deputies say he tried to break into the safe, and then threatened employees with a hatchet as they arrived for work until they opened the safe for him. According to a sheriff’s office spokesperson, employees called 911 as they fled the restaurant while Myers took money from the safe.

Officials say a deputy was nearby doing paperwork. Deputies surrounded the McDonald’s and took Myers into custody as he exited the restaurant.

Deputies charged Myers with robbery and burglary.

Investigators say Myers was a former employee at the McDonald’s. Deputies say he remained silent and gestured with the hatchet to communicate during the crime so his former co-workers wouldn’t recognize his voice.

Missing Person Camden, MS Toddler STILL Missing After 6 Months

Monday, September 1st marked six months since Myra Lewis disappeared.

Law enforcement officials say the investigation has not changed much.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol issued an Amber Alert on March 2 after the toddler had been missing since the day before from her Camden home.

Family members said at a vigil at the Jackson Medical Mall that they think Myra has been kidnapped, but Madison County Sheriff Randy Tucker said that so far all officials know is that Myra is gone.

http://liarcatchers.com/missing_persons_investigations.html

“It was reported as a missing child, she was reported as having wandered off. We haven’t been able to corroborate anything except that Myra is still missing,” Tucker said. “Until we can prove or disprove one theory or another, we’ve still got to consider every possibility. She may have wandered off, she may have been abducted, we just don’t know at this point. We don’t have any physical evidence to lead us in any certain direction other than that.”

Family members told television reporters that their family dogs, who are always with Myra, seemed to have caught a scent that ended at the road.

Authorities say Myra was last seen by her mother at their home on Mount Pilgrim Road. Ericka Lewis said Myra and her sister were outside playing as she left to go shopping. Lewis said she told them to go inside.

“I saw her walk back into the house with her sister,” Lewis told WLBT-Channel 3.

Lewis left about 10:30 a.m. She said the child’s father was in the house when she left, as was a newborn. None of the other children are missing. Tucker would not elaborate on what authorities know from the time Myra was last seen outside the house.

“I don’t want to get into too much what transpired that day. There are statements from everyone involved that are pretty accurate with one another,” he said. “We’ve put together a timeline of events based on those statements. We feel pretty comfortable that Myra was last seen about the hours of 10 and 11 a.m., so that’s what we’re going on until anything changes it.”

Tucker said the property has been searched extensively, including a large pond across the road.

“We’ve foot-searched every inch of the four square miles around this home. What we need are persons that may know the family or have contact with the family that may have knowledge of Myra’s whereabouts,” he said. “We need them to call the Sheriff’s Department, however insignificant they feel the information may be. It may be that piece that we need that can put everything together for us. I would urge them to call and give us that information.”

Myra is approximately 3 feet tall and weighs about 25 pounds.

She was last seen wearing khaki pants, a turquoise sweater with a black bear on the front and pink shoes with glitter.

Authorities are asking anyone with information about the girl’s whereabouts to call 1-855-642-5378 or contact the Madison County Sheriff’s Department at (601) 859-2345.

Missing Person Human Skull Found Near Where Holly Bobo Went Missing

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations is at the scene where a hunter found a human skull, reports WVLT news on Sunday. The location is not far from the home of Zach Rye Adams, who is currently in jail waiting trial for the murder and kidnapping of Holly Bobo of Parson, Tenn.

Holly, then 20, was last seen near her car on Swan Johnson Road being escorted into the woods by an unknown person wearing camouflage clothing, as described by Holly’s brother, Clint.

http://liarcatchers.com/missing_persons_investigations.html

Her disappearance reached the national level and the media all but camped out in her small town in Decatur County for several weeks as they waited for updates from the TBI.

Evidence was found the following weeks after she went missing. Back in 2011 duct tape with blonde hair was found during the search for Holly. A cell phone and camouflage clothing was found inside a vehicle, and a white lunch case was found in a creek.

Early on in the investigation the police also were able to track Holly’s phone through her cell phone records, because it had not been turned off. The path went through Decatur and Henderson counties. The trace shows the phone stopping for about 15 minutes at a remote cemetery. The cell phone was eventually located along a highway north of Parsons, 8 miles from her home, and the SIM card was found a mile from there.

Five months after Adams was arrested, Sandra King, came forward and said she had seen Holly tied up and crying on a cell phone video belonging to her roommate, Jeff Pearcy. She stated she could not watch the rest of the video that Pearcy hinted was of Adams having sex with Holly. Pearcy denies ever having such a video and does not know Adams or Autry, reported the New York Daily News. Police have analyzed several phones but have not found the video.

Pearcy responded to King’s claims saying she was just trying to help her son who has been in prison for 14 years and has 24 years left on his sentence. “I have been up front and honest about everything,” said Pearcy.

The TBI strongly stated that they are not linking the discovery of the human skull to the Bobo case at this time.
