Marshals: Vermont murder suspect could have passed through Upstate New York
BURLINGTON, VT. (WENY) – A man wanted for murder and sexual assault of a minor could have passed through the Upstate New York area, according to U.S. Marshals.
Albany CBS affiliate WGRB reports Leroy Headley is wanted for the murder of his partner and mother of his tow children. Additionally, he's wanted for Sexual Assault on a Minor and Unlawful Flight to Avoid Persecution.
On May 3, 2018, U.S. Marshals say Headley's longtime partner was found shot and killed in their South Burlington, Vermont home. After the murder, he reportedly fled the state.
Officials say they believe he came through Albany and that his car was found there shortly after the killing, but they now think he could have moved throughout Upstate New York.
Officials also believe he is living under an assumed name and could have befriended people under an alias. They also say he could have shaved his head or changed his appearance in another way.
Headley should be considered armed and dangerous.
