MALONE, NY - JUNE 24: Corrections officers search a field as the manhunt for convicted murderers Richard Matt and David Sweat continues on June 24, 2015 in Malone, New York. Matt and Sweat were discovered missing from a prison in nearby Dannemora on June 6. DNA from the two was reportedly found recently in a remote hunting cabin about 15 miles west of the prison.

There has been a manhunt going on for a week now for alleged killer Tyler Terry. Hearing how long the man hunt had been going on had the community in the Chester, Fort Lawn, Lancaster area on edge.

Hearing all that he had been accused of was scary. Originally, accusations were in regards to a murder in York County about a month ago. The suspect and a female suspect fled to St. Louis where he is suspected in two murders there. The pair returned to South Carolina and were spotted in Chester County by an officer. After being spotted, the pair led police on a high speed chase that resulted in a crash. The female companion was arrested and Terry proceeded to run into the woods.

For seven days police have been searching for the suspect. Last night, authorities in Chester County informed the public they felt they had his location in their sights and were closing in.

Eventually they stated they knew the attire he was wearing to ensure the community remained vigilant.

I read last night that officers didn’t believe the manhunt would end peacefully. We then found out he had been captured.

Now that he is in custody, he will be checked out by EMS. I’m hearing that at some point in his life he may have been homeless and may have lived in the woods. This may explain why it was difficult to catch him. We will keep you updated.
