Police Seek Person Of Interest, Missing Child In Ohio Death Investigation

Authorities in Lawrence County, Ohio, continue to search for a man and child who are missing in the aftermath of a triple homicide in the county.

Deputies found three adults fatally shot inside the home, according to the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office.

He was last seen at a 15497 State Route 63 home on Wednesday.

An endangered child advisory for a missing 8-year-old has been cancelled following a deadly shooting in southern Ohio.

Although it is not an Amber Alert, police believe the child is in danger.

That person of interest is Aaron Lawson, 23, of Pedro, Ohio. They found three adults inside a house trailer dead from apparent gunshot wounds.

Devin was last seen on Route 93 in the city of Pedro in Lawrence County.


Investigators said that victim had been stabbed in the neck and head and flown to a hospital. A search was conducted around the initial crime scene, neighbor's houses, friends' and relatives' house and the woods around the area. The sheriff said Lawson was observed by deputies on SR141 near CR 52 driving a blue truck at about 12:30 a.m. The sheriff's office said Lawson crashed into a ditch before he ran into nearby woods where he lost police.

He is described as a white, 7-year-old child, weighing approximately 80 pounds and is 4 feet 8 inches tall.

Anyone with information about Lawson's whereabouts should call 911 or contact the Lawrence County Sheriff's Office at 740-532-3525.

The sheriff's office said releasing further information would compromise the investigation.

Victims' names are not being released at this time pending identification and notification of family.

As part of an ongoing investigation, The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office is now attempting to locate Devin Holston.
