Fugitive couple from Tenn. nabbed in Ohio
NEWPORT, Ky. - The cabbie who picked up the couple suspected in a deadly courthouse shooting in Tennessee said Thursday that he did not buy their story that they needed to get to Columbus, Ohio, for an Amway convention.
"I didn't believe that," cabdriver Mike Wagers said at a news conference. "But they gave me no cause for suspicious other than the Amway thing didn't really stick." Experience had taught him, he said, that real Amway sellers are aggressive about their products.
Wagers said he drove the Hyattes about 115 miles from Erlanger, Ky., to Columbus, and dropped them off at a budget motel. The fare was $185 and the couple handed him two $100 bills at the start of the trip, he said.
