    MI - Sara Knight, 48, Allegan County, 11 Jan 2015

    http://www.wwmt.com/news/features/to...l#.VLaOU8bhoWc

    Allegan County deputies are looking for answers following the death of a woman in Ganges Township. Detectives identified the victim Tuesday as 48-year-old Sara Lee Knight.

    Tuesday morning, deputies were dispatched to the 6200 block of 116th Avenue after a tip call indicated that a person at the home was deceased.

    At this time, detectives are looking for Harold "Butch" Knight, who is being called a person of interest in the case.

    Sara's daughter Roxanne Cameron-Harris told Newschannel 3 that she can think of two places he might be heading -- Beaverton, Michigan, or as far away as Maine. She says he has lived both places...

    Cameron-Harris says Harold was a truck driver, who was gone a lot. "He had a mysterious side to him, but he seemed normal," she said...

    Allegan County Sheriff's Deputies believe that a call to Allegan Central Dispatch came from Harold. "Not being available for us to talk to is a concern, so that's why we're looking for him and consider him to be a person of interest," said Captain Frank Baker, with the Allegan County Sheriff's Office.
    Knight is thought be driving a light green 2009 Subaru Forester with Michigan tag GM74A.

    He's still on the loose:

    Harris said Harold Knight moved back to Michigan, had set aside his wife's money, converting her assets into cash, then absconded with it in Porter-Knight's blue-green Subaru Forester with Maine license plates. After her previous marriage had ended in divorce, Porter-Knight had kept money and assets separate from her husband, Harris said, while maintaining a joint bank account with him.

    The couple had been married for about 13 years, Harris said. There were indicators suggesting the couple's marriage had become strained, Harris said. But her mother never told her that her marriage was in trouble and that she needed to leave, Harris said. "She didn't really complain about anything," Harris said. "But we could tell they were having a few little issues about money, and when you make a big move like that, it's always a financial burden."

    Harris said Harold Knight had been acting "strangely." Harris and her mother's friends had offered her a place to stay if she had needed to leave home, Harris said. "We would have packed her up and moved her out of there," she said. "We never saw this coming."

    Video of a deputy's testimony is shedding light on the murder of an Allegan County woman, as police continue to search for her husband hundreds of miles away...

    "Allegan County Central Dispatch received a phone call from an unidentified male," the deputy told the judge. The caller left no name, just directions to the murder scene, according to the video testimony from a probable cause hearing. "(He) advised dispatch on a taped line that they did harm to this person, and that they were leaving the country," the deputy said.

    The call led deputies to a Ganges Township home, where they found the body of Sarah Knight. Investigators later determined the caller was her husband, Harold Knight.

    I wonder if "leaving this country" means driving up to Canada.

    In the days after Harold “Butch” Knight allegedly strangled his wife, the victim’s mother got a package mailed to her — from Knight, a relative says.

    Sara Knight’s mom didn’t open it. Instead, she turned it over to police, the relative said. It’s still not clear what was inside, but it adds to the mystery for Sara Knight’s family since she was found dead in her home near Fennville on Jan. 13...

    Allegan County Sheriff’s detectives refused to discuss the package. They say they have no indication that Knight has returned to Michigan.

    A sport utility vehicle that belongs to a Michigan man suspected of strangling his wife has been found in Farmington, ME. The snow-covered 2009 Subaru Forester belonging to 66-year-old Harold “Butch” Knight was found Saturday in a Wal-Mart parking lot by a Farmington police officer.

    The Allegan County Sheriff’s Office in Michigan issued a press release Thursday that said Knight’s SUV appears to have been abandoned and may have been in the store’s lot since mid-January. Its Michigan license plate had been removed.

    The department’s news release also included a Wal-Mart store surveillance photograph of Knight dressed in full-length camouflage coveralls, with dyed hair and a mustache, and wearing a bomber hat.

    U.S. Marshals confirm Harold "Butch" Knight stayed in a motel in Rangeley, ME, two days after his wife's body was discovered...

    Joey Morton, the owner of the Town and Lake Motel in Rangely, said U.S. Marshals came to the motel on Saturday and showed him a photograph of Knight. Morton immediately recognized him as a guest who had stayed at the motel from Jan. 15 to the 19...

    Morton said Knight checked in under a different name. He said he wore a one-piece camouflage suit during his stay that was similar to the one he was wearing in the surveillance video from Walmart in Farmington... "He came out and I said, 'What brings you to Maine?' And he said, 'I'm going to go snowmobiling.' And I looked and he didn't have a snowmobile."

    Knight is still on the run. From last month:

    http://fox17online.com/2015/11/07/ti...its-10-months/

    Authorities were even investigating whether Knight had gone into hiding in one of the Amish communities in Maine. At least three Amish communities are known to be in the Rangley area... Family members tipped police off about Knight’s curiosity in the Amish, but detectives also found books in Knight’s pole barn that led them to believe it could be a possibility...

    In July, a relative of Sara Knight contacted authorities after noticing someone had 'liked' a post on Facebook using the deceased wife's account. Investigators later said it was highly probable the only person who likely had the password to the Facebook account was 'Butch.'

    October 2016:

    Hunt for Harold Knight: Inside the mystery package

    http://woodtv.com/investigative-stor...-and-911-call/

    Nearly two years after Harold “Butch” Knight called police to say he'd strangled his wife Sara Knight, her family is growing more desperate to track him down.

    For the first time, they’re revealing what was in a mystery package that Harold Knight sent to his wife's mother, Carolyn Clore.

    Clore said she believes Allegan County detectives aren't doing enough to track down the 66-year-old accused killer.

    "Butch was 6-6 and about 250 to 300 pounds," she said. "He was bald-headed. You could not miss him, but yet the police did miss him.”
    A short time after Sara Knight's death, her mother got a package from Harold Knight with a surprise inside.

    "Two-thousand dollars, wrapped in newspaper -- $1,000 in each package," she said.

    Knight wrote that she should use it to cremate his wife, she said.

    "(It was) cold-blooded. I mean, why would he do that after he killed her?" Clore questioned.

    The package also contained a rambling letter, with what he said was his motive.

    "He claimed he was a drug addict or drug dealer and that she was a liability- that she had seen something she shouldn't have," she said.

    Sara Knight's mother said she doesn't believe that; neither do investigators.

    ‘Butch’ Knight: New tips from investigators 2 years after fleeing

    http://fox17online.com/2017/01/11/bu...after-fleeing/

    This week marks two years since Harold "Butch" Knight called police to say he killed his wife and ran away. And despite some significant roadblocks, local law enforcement isn't giving up their search.

    There are a few things investigators shared with us Wednesday that you might not know about Knight; information that might help identify him even if he's changed his name or hair color.

    “He is hard of hearing, so you know, if someone knows or is in frequent contact, he is hard of hearing,” Hetherington.

    In addition, he has a scar on his stomach. Investigators said you might be able to spot him at a specialty market, because at the time of the murder, he was into health foods. He would frequently order health foods online, or go to specialty health stores. Hetherington said these few things might help make all the difference in ending Knight’s disappearance act, especially if he's made friends who are unaware of what he has done.

    Police do not believe he is still in West Michigan at this time.
