Pa. state police are searching for an armed and dangerous ‘person of interest’ wanted in the weekend killing of a mother and her 10-year-old son who may also have robbed a gas station at gunpoint.
As the Meadville Tribune reports, the wanted subject is identified as Jack Elijah Turner, 21.
The search for him was ongoing in and around Millcreek Township, Erie County, where Turner is a suspect in an early Sunday gas station robbery.
Turner also is wanted for questioning in the double homicide of Shannon Whitman, 49, and her 10-year-old son at a Route 198 home in Crawford County between 6:50 and 10 p.m. Saturday.
Turner also faces a felony charge of theft by unlawful taking for allegedly stealing a gray or silver 2009 Lincoln MKS sedan, license plate KXW5126, from the mother’s residence, the newspaper writes.
Autopsies of Whitman and her son are set for 11 a.m. Tuesday in Erie, Crawford County Coroner Scott Schell tells the newspaper.
The gas station robbery suspect was described as a white male in his early 20s wearing a blue-and-white sweatshirt and matching pants with a black ball cap.
The robber was armed with a black handgun. No one was injured.
Police have since released gas station surveillance photos (shown above) of the suspect.
State police have described Turner as white with dark brown hair and brown eyes, 5 feet, 11 inches tall and 145 pounds. He also has a tattoo covering his right hand, has trimmed eyebrows and frequently wears what appears to be diamond stud earrings in both ears, police tell the newspaper.
Turner is to be considered armed and dangerous, according to state police.
Thoughts? As of this posting date (August 13th, 2019), Turner is still listed as having an active warrant on Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers. Although no exact motive has been released that I can find, Turner is believed to be the stepson of Shannon Whitman and half-brother of her 10-year-old son. This is a very serious case and I hope for the safety of the general public considering Turner is apparently on an alleged crime spree that he is caught very soon.
