Mississippi Murder Suspect Captured

Walker, MI – The U.S. Marshals and the Walker Police Department announce the arrest of an Allegan man who is wanted for Murder and Felony Embezzlement in Bay St. Louis, MS.

Glen Joseph Davis, 42, is a suspect in the killing of an 83 year old man in the small town of Bay St. Louis, MS, on or about March 5, 2012. Davis is charged with embezzling/stealing a vehicle from a female friend after the homicide. Davis has prior arrests for Extortion, Escape, Narcotics, Forgery, Burglary, and Larceny.

Investigators from the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force have been looking for Davis since he was spotted in West Michigan in May of 2012. The Marshals Fugitive Task Forces in MS and Grand Rapids conducted a joint fugitive investigation and developed information that Davis was likely still in West Michigan as late as June 15, 2012. Davis was featured on America’s Most Wanted on June 15 and numerous tips were generated from that program.

Surveillance was established by the US Marshals Fugitive Task Force and Walker Police Department today after a citizen tip was received that claimed Davis had been seen several times near Alpine Avenue just north of I-96. At approximately 3:00 pm today, officers observed Davis riding a bicycle near Alpine and North Center Dr. NW in Walker. Davis attempted to flee on his bicycle but was quickly apprehended by deputy marshals and officers.

Davis is currently being held at the Kent County Jail awaiting extradition to MS on his felony charges.

The U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in Grand Rapids is comprised of law enforcement officers from the Marshals, the Michigan State Police, the Grand Rapids Police Department, and the Michigan Department of Corrections.
