UPDATE: Woman Fatally Shot in O’Fallon Mo. Home, Police Search for Ex-Boyfriend
O’FALLON, Mo. (KMOX) – A 63-year-old O’Fallon man has been charged in Tuesday’s fatal shooting of a woman in the Runny Meade mobile home park.
Terry Glennon Culberson of the first block of Downing Street, was charged today with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
He was still at large this afternoon and being sought by authorities. Police believe he is driving a 2008 red Ford Fusion with a Missouri license plate number PE0F9U.
Authorities have identified the woman killed as Dorothy Hall, 55. They said her relationship to Culberson is unclear, but neighbors said Hall was Culberson’s ex-girlfriend and the two had lived together this summer at his mobile home before breaking up.
Hall’s current address has not been released, but authorities said she has relatives in southeast Missouri.
O’Fallon police were called to check on Hall about 5:15 p.m. Tuesday and found her dead inside Culberson’s home. She had been shot multiple times in the head.
Police today were broadcasting Culberson’s name on police radios and said he had used Hall’s debit card Tuesday night in Poplar Bluff, Mo.
According to court documents, Culberson made threats Monday to harm Hall and her family. An investigation revealed that Culberson was the only person with Hall inside his residence before her death, and Culberson was seen fleeing the area in his vehicle.
Neighbors in the mobile home park said Wednesday that Culberson had lived in the mobile home park about 10 years. Hall had come back Tuesday morning to pick up a red pickup truck from Culberson, they said. She went inside his mobile home but never came out.
Police said that Culberson has a previous conviction for assault with intent to kill with malice and has ties out of state.
His bail was set at $500,000
