Man Still At Large After Escaping Police Custody In Wellston

WELLSTON, Mo. (KMOX) –  The search is one for Billy T. Rabun, Jr.

Police in Wellston say Rabun ran out of police headquarters early Friday after he’d been arrested on outstanding St. Louis County warrants.

Officials warn that Rabun may be armed and dangerous, expressing his desire for retaliation in the recent shooting death of a man he identified as his “brother” before he bolted Wellston PD.

However, there are reports that the two cases may not be related after all.

KMOX News and will bring you more details on this developing story as they become available.
