Mattoon Murder Suspect Spotted in Missouri
There has been a sighting of the Mattoon murder suspect wanted for killing a bartender during a robbery last week. Police in southwest Missouri said Thomas O'Dell has stolen a couple of vehicles there.
Police in Springfield, Mo., said the 41-year-old stole two vehicles in the area. Residents are being warned not to approach him, as he is considered armed and dangerous.
Authorities believe O'Dell first stole a car in Illinois, and was spotted in Mansfield, Mo., last night. He ditched that car and stole a red Chevy Cavalier.
O'Dell dumped that car at a movie theater and, police say, stole a third vehicle--a white 2012 Ford F-250 pickup. It has Missouri license plate 44B0G4.
