    Man wanted in connection with wife's murder, reward offered

    http://brandon.wtsp.com/news/crime/1...reward-offered

    Tampa, Florida -- Hillsborough County detectives are searching for 43-year-old Christopher Belcher who is wanted in connection with the murder of his wife Gwendolyn.

    Gwendolyn's skeletal remains were found in a burned car on Sept. 17, one day after she was reported missing by her family...........

    Once deputies learned of this incident, they arrested Christopher for domestic violence around 3 o'clock on the morning of Sept. 17. His bond had been set at a million dollars, but the state attorney's office dropped the charge, saying they just didn't have enough evidence to hold him..............

    Now, they are ready to re-arrest Belcher and charged him with Second Degree Arson and Second Degree Murder but they need the public's help finding him. He is described as a black male, 5'6", 180 pounds, with brown eyes and bald.

    GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
    A man wanted in Florida on a second-degree murder charge of his wife was arrested Thursday in Greenville County at a relative's home, according to the U.S. Marshals.

    A spokesperson for the Columbia, SC, office of the U.S. Marshal Service said Christopher Belcher, 43, was wanted out of Hillsborough County, FL, on one count of second-degree murder and one count of arson of an occupied structure since Oct. 25.

    The spokesperson said Belcher was arrested at his sister's home on Ridge Road in Greenville with the help of the fugitive task force.

    "I wasn't hiding him in any way," said Kim Belcher.

    She said when her brother showed up on her doorstep he didn't face any charges and she was only recently aware that he had a warrant out for his arrest..............

    Christopher Belcher is currently being held at the Greenville County Detention Center awaiting extradition......more at link....

    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.
