LEBANON, Ky. -- (WDRB) We're learning more about the man accused of murdering a Marion Co. deputy sheriff yesterday morning. Dewayne Shipp has a long criminal record, but most of the charges are non-violent and alcohol or drug-related. Nothing that would point to the alleged killing of a police officer.
DeWayne Shipp has seen more than his share of trouble stretching back to 1995. He has faced charges in four counties, including theft, wanton endangerment, criminal mischief and DUI in Marion Co.; DUI and menacing in Lincoln Co.; DUI, domestic violence and marijuana possession in Grayson Co., and criminal mischief in Washington Co.
Shipp is still recovering at University Hospital from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his leg. Meanwhile, people who live in Marion Co,. are still grieving the loss of Deputy Rakes.
"This just doesn't happen here," said Stevie Lowery, publisher of the city newspaper. She grew up in Marion Co. and knew Anthony Rakes.
"He treated the community with respect. He treated people the way he wanted to be treated. He was just a real easy-going guy."
Rake's murder is just the latest bad news in Marion Co. There have been two murders, two fatal accidents, and a fire with critical injuries all in the past week. Residents, particularly first responders, are on edge.
"It's been tough on the EMS, fire, rescue, law enforcement. And most of them are volunteers in Marion Co," said Hayden Johnson, Marion County's director of emergency management.
"It just seems like there's a black cloud overtop of Marion Co. right now. And we really want it to go away. We're not used to this type of tragedy," said Lowery.
Tonight a state crisis counseling team will come in from Frankfort to talk with Marion County's first responders. It will be a private meeting, but residents are being asked to gather outside the government building at 6PM to show support.
