UPDATE and KudosIt is no wonder that WVLT Volunteer TV has made it up to #2 in the market. They were the first to report the capture/surrender of Houston. They were the first to report the location of the Hyatt's van in Kentucky. You remember the Hyatt's they murdered Cotton Morgan, a prison officer in Roane County. Channel 8 was the first to report the arrest of the Hyatt's in Ohio. Volunteer TV was the first to report the school bus accident about a year ago out in Powell, where the school bus rolled back and hit the tree. Volunteer TV even had their traffic helicopter in the air with live camera shots. Good Job Volunteer TV.
UPDATE: Around 10:50 p.m. he surrendered to THP officers at a home in Roane County, TN. The owner of the home approached THP officers and indicated Houston was at their home and wished to "turn himself in". THP officers then went to the home and Houston turned himself in. I am not sure what to think of the THP being the preferred agency of choice. Sheriff Haggard and local law enforcement have done good on this unfortunate situation.
WVLT Volunteer TV Channel 8 broke the news at 11:04 p.m. tonight that Leon Houston, the brother and co-ambusher of the Roane County Deputy Sheriff and his citizen companion has turned himself into the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
The people in Roane County, TN can sleep a little easier tonight. But, don't forget this great county. They need our prayers and help.
