U.S. Marshals Capture Livingston County Murder Suspect

Kansas City, MO – United States Marshal Scott Seeling announced today the arrest of a former Livingston County respiratory therapist wanted for murder.

Jennifer Hall was wanted by the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office after being formally charged with Murder (1st degree) in Livingston County on May 4, 2022. The charges stem from the 2002 death of a patient at a hospital in Chillicothe where Hall was employed at the time.

The U.S. Marshals Service became involved in locating Hall once she was formerly charged and provided assistance to the case investigators as her current whereabouts were unknown. On the afternoon of May 12, 2022, deputies and task force officers had tracked her to a motel in Overland Park near I-435 and Metcalf. The Overland Park Police Department secured a search warrant for the motel room and she was taken into custody there a short time later without incident. She was transported to the Johnson County Kansas Adult Detention Center to await extradition proceedings back to Missouri.

The U.S. Marshals Midwest Violent Fugitive Task Force-Kansas City Division, operates in conjunction with members of the Kansas City, Independence and St. Joseph Missouri Police Departments, Jackson, Cass, Clay and Buchanan County Sheriff’s Offices, Missouri State Highway Patrol and other federal law enforcement partners. The task force objectives are to seek out and arrest fugitives charged with violent crimes, drug offenses, sex offenders and other serious felonies. It also provides direct support to law enforcement agencies in tracking down and recovering missing children. Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 67 local fugitive task forces, 8 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
