THE U.S. Marshals hope the public can help bring to justice an accused killer wanted for the senseless murders of two co-workers. On March 21, 2009 cops say Beacher Ferrel Hackney, 61, a janitor at the Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, VA. got upset and shot Dwight Kerr and Ronnie Stinnett over a shift change. Surveillance shows the violent loner calmly walking away from the bloodshed with gun in hand. And that's when he vanished.
U.S. Marshal Geoff Shank said: “When Beacher Hackney chose violence to deal with his issues in the workplace, two men were left dead. We will make every effort to track this dangerous criminal down and bring him to justice.”According to the Marshals: Hackney has been a loner his entire life and is referred to as a neat freak with very few material possessions. Police believe he could live in austere conditions and be perfectly fine. Hackney is 5 feet, 6 inches tall and weighs 145 pounds. He has balding grey/white hair and brown eyes. He is missing seven lower teeth and the tip of the first joint on his right pinky finger. He is a skilled outdoorsman and can make his own hunting and fishing equipment. He likes to wear button down shirts over a t-shirt and likes to place his shoes next to where he is sitting.
Hackney is considered armed and dangerous. A reward of up to $25,000 is being offered for information leading directly to Hackney’s arrest. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact the nearest U.S. Marshals office or the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102.
