BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — The Morgan County Sheriff’s Department on Friday released the name and photograph of a male on an identification card that was found with human remains discovered in Berkeley Springs, W.Va., this week.

The name on the identification is Jose E. Castillo.

Morgan County Sheriff K.C. Bohrer said in a news release that Castillo may or may not be the identity of the deceased, but the department is asking the public who may know the male on the identification card to contact the law enforcement agency.

The remains were found Wednesday afternoon in a wooded area off Fairfax Street behind a Berkeley Springs residence that has been used as a religious retreat, Bohrer said Thursday.

The remains are being taken to the West Virginia Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Charleston for examination.

In addition to the identifying information, police also found a green sweatshirt, blue jeans and plaid Hanes boxer

Whistle-blower fired from his job at a landfill, where he found and saved evidence

PENROSE — The man who helped stop the disposal of potential crime evidence at Twin Enviro’s Phantom Landfill here has been fired from his job.

The apparent evidence, linked to former Fremont County sheriff’s Detective Lt. Robert Dodd, was recovered from the Phantom Landfill May 17 due to the quick thinking of worker Robert Orton.

Orton was fired Monday for allegedly leaving an inadequately trained crew in charge while he went on vacation, although he said his vacation had been approved by superiors more than a month in advance.

Orton also was told he was let go for failing to conduct solidification of liquid in the pit. However, Orton said that is a task that requires two workers and he was not allowed to work Saturday, Oct. 21 due to a ban on overtime.

“They wanted me to be the second-in-charge, essentially the assistant manager, but the attitude toward me changed after I found

A former crime scene investigator is playing a central role in a Florida murder inquiry, but this time as the suspected killer.

The victim, 33-year-old Taylor Wright, was first reported missing Sept. 8.

Investigators initially said no foul play was suspected in her disappearance. 

However, in McArthur’s arrest warrant, police paint a picture of a murder motivated by money.

Investigators on the case checked McArthur’s bank records and say they discovered that she deposited a check for $34,000 written in Wright’s name to her own account in August. Since the deposit, all the money

No gun found on or near victim after fatal shooting, police officers testify in Kepler murder trial

The teenager fatally shot by former Tulsa Police Officer Shannon Kepler in 2014 didn’t have a gun on or near him when officers began investigating the shooting, several law enforcement witnesses told a jury Friday.

Kepler, 57, is on trial for the fourth time on a first-degree murder charge in the Aug. 5, 2014, death of 19-year-old Jeremey Lake, who briefly dated Kepler’s estranged daughter, Lisa, after meeting her about a week before he died. Kepler’s previous trials on the same charge ended with mistrials due to hung juries in November, February and July.

Kepler has contended that he shot Lake twice in self-defense because he saw him carrying a gun, but a series of officers involved in the case against him each told jurors they didn’t recover a firearm at the crime scene, which was in the area of Lake’s aunt’s home in the 200 block of North Maybelle Avenue.
