Pastor Murder Suspects May Be In Custody

Updated: Saturday, June 28, 2008, 8:12 am -- CONFIRMED! NBC4 television and the Dispatch newspaper are reporting this morning that two men wanted for this murder were arrested at the Greyhound Bus Station in Columbus late last night. Columbus police were tipped off by West Virginia authorities that the suspects may be on a bus headed to Central Ohio. West Virginia police are in Columbus this morning to question the two men arrested. The motive continues to be robbery, authorities say. Missing from Mark's possession were two firearms and his wallet when his body was found at a Beech Fork State Park firing range near Huntington, W.Va.

Yesterday, prosecutors in West Virginia issued warrants for two men wanted in the murder of Pastor Mark McCalla, an old friend whom I have written about a couple times this past week. Evidence for the warrants came from a raid on a Caball County home on Thursday.

Overnight, I received word that police chatter has two Army deserters being picked up on a bus on the way to Columbus. It might be the same two, it might not. Ironically, the two who are being sought by Huntington, W.Va. police are army deserters, as well.
