Police searching for missing child, person of interest in OH triple murder

Holston was last seen at the home.

Sheriff Jeff Lawless said 8-year-old Devin Holston has been entered into law enforcement databases as a missing and endangered child.

Police are searching for a missing 7-year-old OH boy who is believed to be in danger.

Aaron Lawson, 23, of 15868 State Route 93, Pedro, Ohio, is listed as a person of interest in the case.

Hours earlier, three adults were found dead at an Elizabeth Township trailer.

It's hard to imagine him simultaneously working on a primetime network show, which has its own demanding schedule. It's certainly possible for the show to simply sideline his character for a time until Garber is able to return.

Police say a fourth victim with stab wounds to the neck and head was found at a nearby home. A search was conducted around the initial crime scene, neighbor's houses, friends' and relatives' house and the woods around the area. Lawson was spotted by Deputies on SR 141 near CR 52 driving a Blue Chevy truck at about 12:30 AM and a pursuit ensued. The sheriff's office said Lawson crashed into a ditch before he ran into nearby woods where he lost police.

The names of the victims are not being released at this time pending positive identification and notification of next of kin. The sheriff's office says releasing further information would compromise the investigation.

Anyone who may know the whereabouts of Lawson is urged to contact the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office at (740) 532-3525.

The incident started at about 7:22 p.m. when the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office was called to a residence at 15497 SR 93 in Pedro.

The Twitter account for Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine tweeted that the missing child advisory for Holston had been canceled but didn't provide any details about the boy's condition or if he were safe. The sheriff's office said all three people had gunshot wounds.
