    MT - Monte Swanson, 24, Missoula, 5 August 2014



    http://www.abcfoxmontana.com/story/2...g-missoula-man

    Police say Swanson was seen earlier this month at a transient camp with 27-year-old Kevin Lino, a suspect in the death of Gilbert Berry, a man found earlier this month beaten and shot in the Clark Fork River. Police clarify that Swanson is not a suspect in Berry's death.

    They say Swanson's wallet was recently found in Wyoming.

    Swanson is described as 5'8'', 220 lbs, blonde hair.

    At some point, the witness said, Lino and Berry began to argue before Hickman struck Berry in the head, knocking him to the ground. Lino and Hickman allegedly stomped and kicked Berry while he was down and cut gang symbols into his body with a knife.
    Dangerous company; Lino is still on the loose. There is a FB missing page set up for Monte, but it's a private group:

    -Praying for the victims and their families. May you have the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding.-

    They show that the requirements of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them. This will take place on the day when God judges people’s secrets through Jesus Christ, as my gospel declares. -snip it from the book of Romans

    The impression I got is that Monte was also possibly killed by Kevin but the article didn't come right out to say that so maybe I'm off base.

    Looks like there is already a thread for Monte, I couldn't find it when I searched before making the thread. I'll alert a mod to delete this thread.

    Is there any pictures or description of Kevin Lino? A location at which the wallet of Monte was found?

    Lino's mugshot:



    Hold on... I thought this guy sounded familiar. I think he's on the run with a woman and a bunch of pit bulls. Need to go do some digging...

    Yep, yep, here it is:

    http://www.wvgazette.com/article/201...GZ01/140809317

    Officers have warrants charging Kevin Joseph Lino, 27, with deliberate homicide in the death of Gilbert George Berry, 36. Berry’s body was found in the river Tuesday. An autopsy determined he was beaten and shot.

    Officers also are seeking Angela Marchese, 27, who is believed to be a witness in the case. Marchese uses a wheelchair, and she and Lino are believed to be traveling with a pack of pit bulls in a white 2014 Ford Focus with temporary West Virginia license plates, said sheriff’s spokeswoman Paige Pavalone.

    Capt. Mike Dominick told KGVO-AM that the suspects are believed to be traveling east and have contacts in Massachusetts. He said they have a pattern of selling their pit bulls or trading them for food or vehicles.

    Lino has brown hair and brown eyes, and Marchese has brown hair, blue eyes, deformed hands, a missing right leg and uses a wheelchair.
    There's a thread about these two here:

    Well, this is unexpected:

    Missoula County Sheriff's officials say Monte Swanson, a missing Missoula resident believed to have left town with the couple, was also found in Louisiana. They said he was not wanted by police. The status of the couple's 10 pit bulls is unknown.

    I didn't think this would turn out with a happy ending. What's weird is I'd seen local posts about the couple with the dogs on FB prior to even coming across Monte being missing.
