Logan County Murder Suspect Shot and Killed

After the body of 88-year old Grover Morrison was found inside his home along Stratton Street in Logan Tuesday, officers had been searching for the murder suspect. 37-year old John Edward Dempsey was considered to be armed and dangerous, and was located by officers Thursday night, but not before he may have killed again. State police say Dempsey attempted to invade the home of an elderly man in Taplin last night, but that man ran Dempsey off with a gun. He then went to a neighbor's home and stole a woman's car and led troopers on a short chase before he was shot and killed by officers. A man named Freddie Williams was murdered at his home Thursday night, and officers believe that murder is also connected to the crime spree. No word yet on a motive.
