The manhunt continued Saturday as Stark County Sheriff's deputies continued to search for the estranged husband of a fatal shooting victim.
OSNABURG TWP. As Stark County Sheriff's deputies continued to search Saturday for the estranged husband of a woman shot to death Friday, his family sat on the front porch of the township home the couple had shared.
An aggravated murder warrant with an initial $2 million bond was issued late Friday night for the arrest of Dustin Ray White, 39. White is wanted in connection with the Friday shooting death of Amber White, 32.
"He isn't a bad person," his sister Tosha Murphy said through tears, adding, "She was my best friend. This is a nightmare."
Stark County Sheriff George T. Maier said deputies found Amber White's body at 12:38 p.m. in the home she previously shared with Dustin White at 7487 Hill Church St. SE. She is believed to have gone to the house to retrieve personal belongings, believing he wasn't home.
Sgt. Terry Curry said Saturday morning that deputies are "still actively searching" for Dustin White.
White is described as 6 feet, 2 inches tall and about 190 pounds, last seen wearing a gray T-shirt and blue jeans and driving a red or burnt-orange 2016 Ford Escape with a license plate reading GUY4698.
Curry would not say whether they believe White is still in the area.
"We can't answer that because we are still actively looking for him," the sergeant said. "Everybody should be alert and contact us if the vehicle or he is seen."
Murphy and another family member said their family doesn't have any idea where he could be.
"This is so unexpected," Murphy said. "This isn't like him. He was a nice guy."
Deputies asked anyone who knows where he or the vehicle can be found, or has any other information, to call the Stark County Sheriff's Department at 330-430-3800 or the tip line at 330-451-3937.
