My favorite part of the story was this from the KY3 webpage. What an odd order of events this was..

To Quote the KY3 Story "Neal has served time in prison, including for a robbery in 1997 at a store in Falcon in which he smashed a countertop, threatened the clerk's family, exposed his genitals and left with some alcoholic beverages without paying."

Roby Woman Murdered;
Manhunt Under Way
UPDATED AT 7:45 p.m.: A Missouri State Highway Patrol helicopter is hovering over Roby tonight as lawmen comb the area looking for a man who fatally shot a woman at a trailer.

Authorities learned of the shooting after the woman arrived riding in the back seat of a car at Walt's, a convenience store situated at Highway 17 and 32 at Roby, left. The victim was declared dead when authorities arrived.

The shooting occurred about a mile from the business on Highway 32. Authorities said this evening that the suspect, who is described in his late 50s and who has criminal record, fled into the woods. The Texas County Sheriff's Department and Missouri State Highway Patrol initially gathered at the gas station before establishing a command post at a nearby fire station -- just feet away from the crime scene. Officers from several agencies, including the water patrol, SWAT and K-9 units, are involved.

A roadblock was established at the northern Texas County line -- a route authorities believed the suspect may use to escape. Passersby were warned to be on the lookout for a hitchhiker and to not leave their homes.

Marked and unmarked police vehicles drove back and forth on Highway 17 looking for any sign of the suspect as the patrol helicopter hovered above.

The man is 5 feet, 11 inches with brown hair. Authorities are operating on the assumption that the suspect is on foot after apparently entering the woods following the shooting. He drives a 1987 Ford pickup bearing license plate 240-WRZ.


Success and Plato students were held in school buildings after the shooting - the first this year in Texas County - occurred just before 3 p.m. The pupils have since been released to parents.

Persons with any information are urged to call the Texas County Sheriff's Department at 417-967-4165 or the patrol's Troop G at 417-469-3121.

No word on his being caught.  He is a local and from what I hear, knows the countryside.  This guy had a shotgun with him.  Seems like 7-8 years of state "rehabilitation" did not take.  Hope they find him and he resists....ineffectively.  Why should the taxpayers pay for MORE "rehab", plus room and board and medical bills?

All I want is a decent nights sleep.  My boys are horrified!  My boys are 2nd graders at Plato.  One of my boys kept me up most of the night last night having nightmares.  I stayed home from work today just to get some sleep. 

I understand the school had to do what they had to do, but they scared the daylights out of all of those kids yesterday by announcing the whole situation over the PA system for all of them to hear.  Other than that....I will give them props for how they handled getting the kids to their parents safely.

A couple of updates:

I talked to Law101....she's as energetic as ever and safe.

From KY3:  http://www.ky3.com/news/6487222.html

Officers on manhunt may have spotted fugitivePLATO, Mo. -- Law officers looking for an accused killer may have spotted him late Wednesday afternoon. They've been looking for Neldon Neal since Tuesday.

Two school districts canceled classes on Wednesday because of the manhunt. Neal likely is armed and dangerous. Neal is charged with killing a woman between Evening Shade and Roby on Tuesday.

About 70 officers, including sheriff's deputies from four departments, backed by a Highway Patrol helicopter, are searching rural northwest Texas County. Neal is charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of Judy Lewis, 51, after a fight in a trailer home about a mile west of Roby. At least two people brandished guns during the fight.

Sgt. Marty Elmore, a spokesman for the Missouri State Highway Patrol, says Elmore was an acquaintance of Neal, who lives near Roby. Elmore said Lewis was shot with a handgun.

Officers say Neal was last seen leaving the trailer on foot dressed in camouflage pants and a flannel shirt. Apparently he did not drive away even though he had a vehicle there.

The Plato School District had a half school day planned for Wednesday but decided to cancel classes altogether. It also had parent/teacher conferences scheduled for Wednesday but the superintendent canceled those as well. The district is closed the rest of the week as planned for a spring break.

The Success School District canceled classes on Wednesday but the superintendent still planned, as of early Wednesday, to have classes on Thursday.

Lawmen Converge In Area Where Man Seen


UPDATED AT 7:07 p.m. Officers have converged on an area about two miles south of the shooting scene, where a man was seen running through the woods. Texas County Sheriff Carl Watson said this evening that the lead is promising, adding "there is no reason for someone to be in that area."

A Missouri State Highway Patrol helicopter and a tracking dog are on the scene, as are all available officers. Lawmen believe they have the pinpointed area surrounded.

NEW DETAILS: New details about a fatal shooting at Roby are contained in court documents filed today in Texas County Associate Circuit Court.

Marsha Sumrall, along with her girl, were inside a Highway 32 trailer when an argument ensued between murder suspect, Neldon Neal, and his companion, Judy Lewis. According to the paperwork, Neal came home, a fight ensued and weapons were brandished by Lewis and Neal. Sumrall said she handed a gun to Lewis, and Neal took it away and the two struggled.

"Ms. Sumrall stated that she saw Mr. Neal throw Judy Lewis off his back and shoot her one time blank in the chest," an officer wrote. At the time, Lewis was unarmed, Sumrall, who is Judy Lewis' former mother-in-law, said.

I am somewhat releived that the shooting incident was not with a random victim.   But if he seeks shelter in someone's home and he has already killed once, I wouldn't want to be the homeowner.  What are the odds he will stay in that area?   Or flee?

I seriously doubt that he is in the dixon area, I live in Evening Shade and if he is anywhere he is in the woods.  He has lived here most of his life and could probably survive for a while.  I just hope that they catch him soon and there are no more victims.

Remember Alis Ben Johns?  Now that guy hid around the local area and avoided capture for months and also killed a few people on his road to capture.  That was quite a scary time.

Yeah, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't kill anyone else.  From what locals that know him have said.  He's try to kill several people.  Even all the women he has ever been with.

$1000 Reward!

http://www.houstonherald.com/

BREAKING: ROBY -- As officers began a three-mile hike into the wooded Ozark hills of northern Texas County to search for a suspected killer Friday morning, Texas County Sheriff Carl Watson announced a $1,000 reward for information that leads to the location and apprehension of Neldon H. Neal.

The announcement came from a command post just 1/4 mile from the trailer where Neal allegedly shot and killed his wife Tuesday afternoon. Neal, a convicted criminal with a violent past, is charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Judy Lewis, 51, following an argument.

Authorities from multiple agencies continue to comb the area in a massive manhunt that has reached its fourth day. Water Patrol officers from Howell County set out on foot Friday morning to search a cave in the Paddy Creek area that Neal was known to be familiar with. The Missouri State Highway Patrol also resumed an aerial search Friday.

An outdoorsman who grew up in the area, Neal knows the land well, Watson said.

"He's been in these woods for all of his life," Watson said. "He knows the locations and where everything is."

Although there have been no sightings of Neal and no beneficial leads, Watson believes he could still be in the area. He also doesn't think anyone is assisting him.

"We don't think he'll leave this area," Watson said. "This is his comfort zone."

Neal is said to be armed and dangerous. After the shooting, authorities believe he fled into the woods with a small handgun and unknown caliber revolver.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Neal should call the Incident Command Post (417-458-4214), Texas County Sheriff's Department (417-967-4165) or Troop G Headquarters (417-469-3121).

"He will be brought in, but it's important right now that we resolve this peacefully," Texas County Prosecuting Attorney Mike Anderson said. "If he surrenders, he'll be treated fairly. He needs to know that. He needs to know it's important that we hear his story of what happened Tuesday."

I can't confirm this.
