    Oh this is great news about his capture! I actually searched online for an update earlier this evening and found nothing. It must have been right before the news broke.

    I figured the U.S. Marshals would catch Hampton and bring him in.

    13 days on the run. 13 days time for LE to come up with additional charges if warranted.

    "Authorities say he will remain in custody in Ohio until he can be extradited back to Alabama. The Marshal’s Service says Hampton is also under investigation for possible federal violations

    “Quick action by law enforcement in Alabama and Ohio led to the capture of this fugitive who was very clearly on the run from authorities. A person with little regard for life is off the streets and both communities are safer this evening,” said U.S. Marshal Peter Elliott."

    I just said to my husband, "Well I'm going to check if they've caught Hampton before I go to bed but it's probably same ol same ol." Ha! Finally!

    I know it's wishful thinking but I'd like to see anyone who aided or harbored him prosecuted.

    Any ideas? What is the "investigation" for "possible" federal violations? We know he was a runner that crossed state lines no need to investigate that (not even sure if that is federal).

    ETA: Quickly looked up and found. Interesting wonder what the violation is.

    Often, if you can be charged at the federal level, you will. That is because federal penalties are typically harsher than state sentences. Prosecutors will often pursue the harshest charges and penalties possible.

    Some of the common reasons to be charged at the federal level include:
    • The alleged criminal conduct crossed state lines, either physically or over the internet.
    • The alleged criminal conduct crossed the U.S. border.
    • The alleged criminal conduct violates a federal statute.
    • The alleged criminal conduct occurred on federal property.
    • The alleged perpetrator or victim is a federal employee or agency.
    • A federal agency discovered and investigated the alleged criminal conduct, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), or Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
    • The alleged criminal conduct was discovered through an informant.

    My guess is they are waiting to see the complete toxicology etc to determine whether to charge him with some sort of non-drug homicide/manslaughter or drug-induced homicide. if indications are it was a drug OD and she self-administered they could still go for the recently popular drug induced homicide charge: They Shared Drugs. Someone Died. Does That Make Them Killers?

    People have been charged under these laws just for making a connection (text msg trails) or driving someone to make a purchase who later OD'd--without some of the charged individuals ever handling any of the fatal drugs.

    I agree they should face charges.

    @cass523 linked article upthread:

    "Hampton was taken into custody without incident at the home of a family member in Garfield Heights, a suburb of Cleveland."

    I agree. If more charges are issued, I suspect this may be it.

    The last one is interesting. I have wondered if an informant is involved in this case.

    Would failure to report his address and leaving across state lines as a convicted sex offender also be considered a federal charge?
