AKRON, Ohio -- The U.S. Marshals’ Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force is offering a reward for information that leads to the capture of an Akron man wanted in connection with a fatal home invasion in June.
Martino Livingston, 33, with a last known address on Hardesty Boulevard in West Akron, has been charged with murder, according to Akron Municipal Court records. He should be considered armed and dangerous, the Marshals said Monday in a news release.
Investigators from the Akron Police Department and Summit County Sheriff’s Office say that on June 26, Livingston and three teenage boys broke into a home on the 900 block of Rowe Street on Akron’s southeast side.
The group shot a 12-year-old boy, a 24-year-old man, a 39-year-old woman and 34-year-old Brandon J. Varner, who died at the scene, according to police and the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office.
Lavontae Poole, 16, of Canton, Zaveon Carter, 17, of Akron and Marquis Felder, who was 17 at the time, of Akron have been charged as adults with aggravated burglary and murder, according to Summit County Court of Common Pleas records.
Anyone with information about Livingston should call the U.S. Marshals at 1-866-492-6833 or text WANTED and a tip to 847411. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
Thoughts? As of this posting date (December 3rd, 2019), there has been no movement in Summit County Ohio's online criminal court records since a warrant to arrest was issued on October 31st, 2019: clerkweb.summitoh.net/CaseDetails.asp?CaseID=803036
Not that it makes up for the death of Brandon Varner in any way but this very easily could have been a quadruple homicide with an under-18 victim. And I have no idea why Livingston was allegedly hanging out and committing a deadly home invasion with a bunch of teenagers in the first place. (Usually teenage suspects aren't named publicly, but I'm assuming because they have been charged as adults is the reason why they were). In any case, this makes Livingston an allegedly very dangerous suspect that needs to be caught as soon as possible.
