Police look for man for questioning about homicide

Officers in the area are looking for a man wanting for questioning about a homicide in Butler County.

Washington County Sheriff Kevin Schroeder said his office received information two days ago that two individuals wanted in connection with a Butler County homicide were residing in the Potosi area.

Schroeder said officers found out where the individuals were staying and took one suspect in custody. The other man, Charles Langley, 29, was not at the residence but officers received information he would be at Hardees on Highway 21 in Potosi about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Schroeder said officers got in position at Hardees and waited for Langley to show up. When Langley saw officers, he took off on foot into a wooded area in the vicinity of Hardees.

“And it went downhill from there,” the sheriff said.

The suspect was last seen near Route U.

The female who was with him at Hardees was taken into custody for questioning.

About 9:30 a.m., area officers were notified that the suspect was believed to be in the area and that he was wanted for questing for a homicide, fleeing Washington County officers and on multiple warrants with other agencies.

The officers were told to approach the suspect with caution.

Anyone with information should contact their local law enforcement agency or Washington County authorities at (573) 438-1079.

He was last seen wearing a gray short-sleeve shirt and blue jeans. He is described as being a white male, 6 foot tall and about 180 pounds.
