Accused murderer thought to be hiding in Tulsa

Latwon Goff is accused of shooting two people during a robbery. 

Police believe he could be in Tulsa, because he's from the area. Goff was first charwged as charged as a youthful offender in 2014 for armed robbery, larceny and carrying a concealed weapon. He was convicted on those charges in 2015, and he was sentenced to 15 years in a juvenile facility.

In December 2016, all his charges were dropped after a court review, and Goff was released. Tulsa District Attorney Steve Kunzeiler called the release a mistake and told KRMG his office worked to keep Goff in jail.

Goff is now 18-years-old and Texas police think he robbed and killed someone in Dallas. 

Anyone with information regarding this murder or the whereabouts of Latwon Goff is encouraged to contact Homicide Detective Shelton, #7760, at 214-671-3612 or c.shelton@dpd.ci.dallas.tx.us. Please refer to report #040603-2017 or Call Crime Stoppers 918-596-COPS.

Crash victim's parents outraged at fundraiser for driver's family

The parents of a teenager killed in a 2015 car wreck are upset about a fundraiser to recoup legal fees, medical bills and other expenses of the family of the driver who caused the wreck.

The GoFundMe page called Family Help Fund seeks to raise $75,000 for the family of Abigail McGaha.

Prosecutors charged McGaha and later reached a plea agreement after she crashed an SUV in 2015. Police said the vehicle had been traveling more than twice the speed limit.

The crash killed Alex Mundt, 16, of Sante Fe, New Mexico. He had been wearing a seat belt and riding in the car with McGaha and one other passenger at the time.

The GoFundMe webpage lists the creator as Joseph McGaha.

The fundraiser description says, "Abby's criminal legal battle is pretty much behind us. But the civil battle remains with Alex's family."

It cites legal fees from criminal and civil cases, medical bills from the accident and a family knee surgery as creating a "financial burden."

The post said the two families settled out of court to avoid a civil lawsuit.

"The second portion of an established payment is due to Alex's family in February. The first payment was made in November. We are establishing a Go Fund Me for this purpose," part of the post read.

Mike and Lynn Mundt, Alex's parents, had not been not aware of the page until WSOC contacted the couple Monday.

"I'm stunned that they would do such a thing," said Mike Mundt. "I can't imagine what all was involved in the case and then a civil settlement afterwards, but those are natural consequences of crime and to ask the community to pay for the consequences of crime is incredulous to me."

Calls and messages made in attempt to reach the McGaha family were not immediately returned. 

NWS: Freezing rain possible toward Friday

The National Weather Service says a significant weather event, both of the winter and flooding variety, may affect eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas from Friday into the weekend.

Heavy and repeated episodes of rainfall are likely near the boundary, which would lead to a considerable flooding risk, despite the ongoing severe drought conditions across a large portion of the region.

This moisture will also affect parts of the area located in the cold air.

The latest model contains the potential for sleet, and certainly snow is drastically diminished in this scenario.

A combination of two weather forecasting models support freezing rain as a dominant winter type.

The best chance for significant ice accumulations and the potential for prolonged power outages continues to be to the northwest of Interstate 44 in the latest data, with total amounts at least approaching, if not exceeding, an inch through Sunday.

Expect the location of the freezing line to be refined with later data sets, which would include the areas affected by the ice accumulations.

The effects of the upper low could linger into at least the early part of next week, although the medium range data differ on when the low will actually exit our area.

We continue to stress that, although some details in this forecast exhibit less uncertainty than others, uncertainty nevertheless remains.

There will continue to be refinement in all the details as additional data, closer to the event in question, are received and analyzed.

Continue to monitor KRMG's trusted weather forecasts through this week.

McDonald's restaurant scene of armed robbery during business hours

Armed robbers storm into a McDonald's restaurant at closing time.

The store at 333 South 129 East was still open when three young black males smashed the glass in the door, then told everyone inside to get toward the back of the business.

The restaurant "usually closes down about one o'clock normally because of the location where it's at," TPD Corporal R. W. Solomon said.

The suspects told the manager to open the safe in the office, where they took money and headed out the front door.

"No one was hurt during the incident."

Police are examining the video.

Secret Santa drops $1K gold coin in red kettle for what might be second year in a row

The Salvation Army Corps of Springfield, Ohio, got a kick start to its holiday fundraising when they found a gold coin worth $1,000 in one of its red kettles.

It’s the second time in two years that a South African gold coin wrapped in a $100 bill has been dropped in a red kettle at the Kroger store on Bechtle Avenue, Salvation Army Resource Developer Ryan Ray said.

Around the same time last year, a gold coin valued at $1,200 was dropped in the bucket, Ray said.

The Salvation Army never figured out who dropped the coin, he said.

The Red Kettle Campaign kicked off on Nov. 4 and runs through Christmas Eve.

More than 800 Clark County families signed up for Christmas assistance through the Springfield Salvation Army office this year, Ray said.

Money raised in the kettles goes toward community programming for the Salvation Army throughout the year. The organization says that for every dollar donated to the Salvation Army in Clark County, 83 cents goes back to the community.

Police: Child taken along for ride as 4 people rob Central Florida home

Four thieves burglarized a Central Florida home while a child sat in the back seat of a getaway car, police said.

The burglary happened during the middle of the day Tuesday in the Orlando suburb of Ocoee.

Thanks to astute neighbors, the thieves only made it about three miles down the road, police said.

Officers said they caught the culprits and found the stolen items and the child, who is younger than 10.

According to a charging affidavit, neighbors called police after they watched the car with the four people inside pull up to the home.

The affidavit also said one woman got out and banged on the door, and when no one answered, the two men inside the car got out and, "ran up to the door and kicked it open.”

Police said the culprits ran out of the home with a briefcase, got in the car and drove away.

Neighbors said it is important to look out for each other.

"I think it's great I think we need to do that," neighbor Alice Nice said.

The child was placed in the custody of relatives.

Detectives said they are working on charging Kameron Allen, Tyshira Davis, Kiara Jackson and Joshua Joseph with child endangerment.

The four were arrested and charged with burglary and remain in the Orange County Jail.   

No injuries were reported.

Man,mistaken for deer, shot, killed by brother on hunting trip

An Atlanta man was shot and killed Saturday by his brother while on a hunting trip with family members in South Carolina, an official said.

The brother of Brian Gregory Pickle, 30, mistook him for a small doe or a coyote, Union County Sheriff David Taylor said Tuesday afternoon.

Brian Pickle and Scott Leonard Pickle had the same Roswell Road address, Taylor said. Their father, who lives in Arlington Heights, Ill., also was in the hunting party.

The incident happened shortly before 6 p.m., not long before nightfall on land leased for hunting, Taylor said. Because darkness was near, Pickle’s brother said he felt limited in time to take a shot, never thinking it could’ve been a person, Taylor said.

“We see these types of accidents all too frequently,” Taylor said.

The autopsy showed that the victim died of a gunshot wound to the head, coroner William Holcombe said.

“It was a family hunting outing turned horribly tragic,” the coroner said.

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources is investigating the incident.
