Fugitive Found Shot To Death


A fugitive from Athens County is found shot to death in a Parkersburg home.

Parkersburg police went to a Putnam Street home late Tuesday morning, to arrest Jerry Lewis on felony warrants.

Sgt. Greg Collins says Lewis had failed to show up in court in Athens, for the shooting of his wife in 2011.

He says Lewis wouldn't talk to police when they arrived.

They entered the home after hearing a gunshot, and found him dead of a gunshot wound.

Sgt. Collins says police previously tried to serve an arrest warrant on Lewis in a previous case.

Foul play is not suspected in his death.
