Recent Updates on Death Investigation and Most Wanted Fugitive Arrests
The unattended death investigation from September 28, 2016 in the northwest part of Livingston County has an update as preliminary investigation suggests suicide. Certain evidence will be tested at the MSHP Crime Lab and additional investigation continues with assistance of the Livingston County Coroner’s Office. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the family, friends, and loved ones.
Over the weekend 3 of our Most Wanted fugitives were arrested:
September 30 authorities in Grundy County arrested Kimberly Irene Stevens, 29, Trenton on a Livingston County arrest warrant for alleged class C felony of Forgery. Bond was set at $15,000 and Ms. Stevens was transferred to the Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail.
October 1 Darrell Wayne Graham, 36, Gallatin, surrendered to the Chillicothe Police Department on a Livingston County arrest warrant for alleged class B felony of Child Molestation-1st degree, bond was set at $150,000. Mr. Graham was then taken into custody by the LCSO and transferred to Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail.
October 2 James R. Yeomans, 19, Hale, was arrested by authorities in Carroll County on a Livingston County arrest warrant for alleged Probation Violation on original class C felony conviction of Possession of Controlled Substance. The LCSO extradited Mr. Yeomans from Carroll County authorities and he was transferred to Daviess Dekalb County Regional Jail as the warrant did not allow bond to be posted.
At least one of these arrests was due to one or more TIPS as a result of posting on the LCSO website and social media. This makes a minimum of 138 fugitives which have been arrested based solely on TIPS from our website since January 2012. This does not include the number of persons who have surrendered after learning of their postings. We thank you for all the TIPS over the years.
