Kanawha County deputies said they have identified one of the two people shown in surveillance video with a woman accused in the murder of a Charleston man.
Deputies said they received anonymous tips that helped them identify a white male who was shown in the video on Sept. 24 and Sept. 25 at Lowe’s home improvement store in Kanawha City, according to a news release from the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office. The man was accompanied by a black man and Kelsey Legg, who is charged with felony murder in connection with the death of Kareem Hunter.
The white male was interviewed by detectives, but they do not believe he was involved in Hunter’s murder, the release said. Detectives said the man did some remodeling work at Legg’s apartment after the crime occurred.
Detectives with the Charleston Police Department discovered the scene of a violent crime at Legg's Marmet apartment on Oct. 2, where they found the walls had been freshly painted and the carpet replaced. According to the criminal complaint, Legg lured Hunter to her apartment with the intention of having him kidnapped.
Once inside the apartment on 83rd Street, investigators said, a man put a bag over Hunter's head and a fight broke out. Legg's brother told police Hunter was killed and two men put his body in the trunk of a car.
