BANGOR, Mich. (WDHN) — The man wanted for the March 24 murder of Deyasmine Keyon Sheppard has been captured.
U.S. marshals found Robert Dean Thomas, 45, all the way in Bangor, Michigan, more than two months after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Sheppard’s mother reported his disappearance on March 26 after not seeing him for two days. Nearly a month later, his remains were located near a stream around the outskirts of Eufaula.
Forensic evidence then identified Thomas as one of the suspects involved, the other two being Eufaula natives Jesse James Maness and Isabella Elizabeth Dooley.
Thomas is now in custody and will be extradited to Alabama.
