Father-son dead in W. Memphis shootout

Posted By on Fri, May 21, 2010 at 6:46 AM

The Commercial Appeal is reporting that a man and his 16-year-old son are the suspects in the shootouts that left two West Memphis police officers dead and a sheriff and deputy wounded. The CA also has a file photo of the officers who were killed, taken when they were on duty together.

The tie has not been nailed down, but some evidence gathered so far points to a tie between the van driven by the dead suspects and a white supremacist.

Authorities say the van was registered to House of God's Prayer, 143 Main in New Vienna, Ohio.

The Wilmington (Ohio) News Journal quoted New Vienna Police Chief James Holcomb as saying he has not seen any activity at the storefront church.

According to the public-records firm Accurint, that same address was associated with a deceased white supremacist named Harold R. Redfeairn.

The Ohio newspaper identifies the church, closed for some years, as having been associated with the Aryan Nation supremacist group.
