Virginia Killing Suspect Found in Town Known for Lawlessness

Posted: Apr 11, 2018 8:39 PM Updated:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A man wanted in Virginia for the shooting death of a teen has been found in a California desert town known for the absence of any law.

The Virginian-Pilot reports 30-year-old Andre' Jeru Bernard Bigby, of Virginia Beach, was arrested Friday in Slab City, California, nearly two months after 19-year-old Jayln Devon Harris was killed.

Steve Gurman with the U.S. Marshals Office in San Diego says Virginia Beach police told them Bigby was believed to be in the area of Slab City, a former Marine base around 40 miles (64 kilometers) from the Mexican border. Gurman said marshals often pull fugitives out of the so-called lawless town, making it "not such a great place to hide."

Bigby is charged with murder and being a felon in possession of a firearm. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.

    Proposed Roundabout for Wicomico County Intersection

    There is a intersection in Salisbury off Route 50 that has several roads leading into it and 12 traffic lights regulating it. 

    Mount Hermon Road, Long Avenue, Truitt Street, East Williams Street, and Main Street all intersect at one central location. 

    People in the community have mixed feelings about the intersection. Some say it should be left alone because it regulates traffic just fine while others say it is a nuisance.
