Murder suspect sought

GLASGOW — An arrest warrant has been issued against John W. Amis on charges of murder, domestic violence and tampering with evidence in the death of 37-year-old Lorine LaBombard of Embark Court, according to a press conference at Glasgow Police Department on Thursday.

“On the date of June 16, 2014, at approximately 1:33 p.m. the 911 dispatch center received a call from John W. Amis stating he was driving to T.J. Samson Community Hospital with his wife who was unresponsive due to a possible drug overdose,” GPD Chief Guy Turcotte said. “On arrival at the hospital Ms. LaBombard was pronounced dead by the attending emergency room physicians.”

Turcotte said Barren County Coroner Mike Swift contacted the criminal investigation division of the Glasgow Police Department and requested a detective.

“Based on his initial findings of the bruising and injuries to the body that suggested possible foul play to Ms. LaBombard,” Turcotte said, “an autopsy was conducted at the medical examiner’s office in Louisville which ruled out an overdose as the cause of death, but rather blunt force trauma to her body.”

Amis is known to have ties in the following areas: Florida, specifically in Broward County, Coral Springs and West Palm Beach; Kentucky, specifically in Florence, Covington and Newport areas; Ohio; and in Barren County, a press release issued at the conference said.

He is a white male, 6’3”, 245 lbs, 37-years-old, has blue eyes and brown hair. He also has several distinctive tattoos on his body: two teardrop tattoos below his right eye, the name Nathan on the right side of his neck, the name Madison on the left side of his neck, and the name Chase on the back of his neck, big stars on his shoulders and one across his stomach that says Pimp, Turcotte said.

Turcotte encourages anyone with information as to the whereabouts of Amis to contact the criminal investigations divisions of the GPD immediately at 270-651-5151.
