MOOREFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WDTN) - The man wanted in connection to a Clark County homicide has been caught.
Ryan M. Dillon, 25, was located and taken into custody without incident in Delavan Township, Wis.
Deputies have been searching for Dillon since May 9, when they said Dillon's stepfather, Martin Burks, arrived home from work to find the house he shares with his wife and Dillon, empty. Burks' pickup truck was also gone.
Deputies arrived at the house to help in the search and at approximately 9 p.m., the wife, identified as Vicky Burks, 59, was found dead inside the house.
According to investigators, Dillon got into an argument over the truck with his stepfather and mother the day before she was killed.
Officers from the Delavan Township Police Department said they found Dillon near the stolen Dodge Dakota pickup truck which was taken from the scene on Middle Urbana Road in Clark County, Ohio.
"He tried to lie," said Sheriff Gene Kelly. "He didn't appear to be under the influence or incoherent in any way, he wanted to conceal his identity".
Investigators with the Clark County Sheriff's Office and agents with the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation are traveling to Delavan to continue their investigation. Delevan, Wis. is located approximately 50 miles southwest of Milwaukee.
"This was a terrible tragedy," added Sheriff Kelly. "The family is devastated. This was a good person who worked hard in this community and was good. It's a tragedy, but at least we believe we have the right suspect and hope to put this case together very quickly".
