A man wanted for questioning in connection to a death investigation in North Carolina was picked up in Putnam County.
James Michael Burcham, 35, was taken into custody by West Virginia State Police about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday on Interstate 64 near the Hurricane exit. State Police said the vehicle he was driving was flagged by law enforcement in North Carolina. The Forsyth County Sheriff's Department is seeking to question Burcham in connection to a death investigation.
Detectives from North Carolina came to the West Virginia State Police Winfield detachment to process the vehicle. Burcham was booked at the Western Regional Jail early Thursday morning. Troopers said the man will be brought back to North Carolina. Troopers said a woman also was in the van at the time but was released.
