Anniston police seeking serial rapist
Anniston Police investigators they are dealing
with a “sexual predator,” who has robbed and raped at least three
and possibly five women over the past six months. Police have begun
notifying residents between East 15th and 22nd Streets in Anniston
to be alert. Anniston investigators have connected at least three of
the incidents based on similarities, but now say that the total may
be “upwards of five.” Police say they are searching for a black
male, between 20 and 35 years of age, standing about six feet tall,
and weighing around 200 pounds. Police are asking residents for any
information that may help them locate the suspect, reminding
residents to lock all exterior doors and cars, be aware of
surroundings at all times, vary their daily routines, and consider
investing in an alarm system.
Suspect charged in murder of Ragland man
Etowah county authorities Tuesday charged A
49-year-old man suspected in the shooting death of a Ragland man
with murder. 49 year old Roy Gongora Ramirez has been in jail at
the Etowah County Detention Center since he was arrested Sunday
afternoon. Ramirez had been charged with murder in the death of 51
year old Terry Lacaine Trammell. Trammels body was discovered Sunday
afternoon behind an abandoned house on U.S. 431 in the Sand Valley
community. Etowah county sheriff Todd Entrekin said that Trammell
appeared to have been dead for several days, and it appears he was
killed in the same area where he was found. Trammell’s carwas found
in the parking lot at a nearby convenience store. An Oxford man and
some young boys who stopped for a short break from driving on U.S.
431 discovered the body Sunday afternoon. Entrekin said Sheriff’s
Department investigators and agents with the Etowah County Drug
Enforcement Unit were working the case when an agent got a tip that
led to the arrest of Ramirez about four hours after Trammell’s body
Sex offender released on bond after
The family of an 11 year old Etowah county girl
are circulating a petition in the walnut grove community after an
Etowah County released a convicted sex offender accused of
attempting to entice the 11 year old. 61 year old Donald Edward
Holcomb, of the Aurora community near Boaz, was released Monday
afternoon on $2,500 bond after he was charged with enticing a child
into a vehicle for illegal or immoral purposes, a Class C felony.
The judge has ordered Holcomb to be under house arrest and to wear
an ankle bracelet with GPS monitoring. Etowah County District
Attorney Jimmie Harp said he filed a motion Tuesday to request
conditions be placed on Holcomb’s bond. Etowah County District Judge
William Russell signed an order late Tuesday afternoon that orders
Holcomb to be placed under house arrest and wear an ankle bracelet
with GPS monitoring. A tip led to Holcomb’s arrest three days after
he allegedly tried to grab an 11-year-old girl in the parking lot at
West End Grocery in Walnut Grove and tried to get her to go with
him. The child’s grandmother, who objected to holcombes release,
said a petition is circulating in the Walnut Grove community to
protest Holcomb’s release from jail.
