He has been wanted for questioning by Marshall County sheriff's investigators since April 2012, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.

Former Rust employee faces assault charge
Sylvester Oliver, 62, of the 1600 block of Hernando Road and former chair of the Department of Humanities at Rust College, was arrested Friday and charged with aggravated sexual assault, according to police chief William Hollowell.
The incident, involving a student, is alleged to have occurred in Oliver’s office on the Rust College campus during the evening hours of September 18, he said.
The case has been bound over to the grand jury. Oliver was released this week on $25,000 bond.
David Beckley, president of Rust, said Oliver has been dismissed from his duties at the college.
Hollowell said two additional felony arrests were made last week in connection with a robbery.
Hezekiah Walton, 20, of the 200 block of North Shelby Drive, and Deshun Hasbury, 23, of the 400 block of West College Avenue, were arrested and charged with strong arm robbery, Hollowell said.
Walton was armed with a knife, he said, and Hasbury with a gun.
The robbery is alleged to have occurred at the intersection of West College Avenue and West Boundary in the victim’s car, the chief said.
