Investigation of missing man from rural Appleton City concludes, warrant arrest and burglary report taken

Investigation of missing man from rural Appleton City concludes

     On May 27, during a search conducted by the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office and friends of the family, the remains of Dale Miller, 78, of rural Appleton City, were located an estimated one-mile north of his home on NW 400 Road in St. Clair County. Miller had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and has been missing since Oct. 25, 2014 when he wandered into the woods near his home and did not return. The sheriff’s office, family, friends and numerous volunteers conducted several searches and extensive ground checks throughout the investigation.

     On May 26, it was reported a boot had been located in a stream on a nearby property. The boot matched the description of boots Miller was wearing when he went missing. A search was organized the next day and in the early afternoon hours his remains were located. No foul play was suspected in the case.

Warrant arrest

Jerry Usher

     Jerry Usher- On May 27, Jerry Usher, 26, Republic, was arrested on two St. Clair County felony warrants. One warrant was issued on Sept. 2, 2014 and charges Usher with class C felony domestic assault-second degree. The charge stems from an incident on Aug. 30, 2014 when a St. Clair County deputy responded to a domestic assault in progress on SE 801 Road, Collins.
     On arrival, a female victim explained she was physically assaulted by Usher. She said she went to a neighbor’s residence and got into a truck to flee. As they were driving from the scene, Usher allegedly stopped the truck and grabbed her, threw her out of the vehicle onto the ground and was chocking her. She said the neighbor stopped Usher and then Usher attacked the neighbor. They left the scene to call for help. Bond is set at $10,000 cash or surety.

     The second warrant was issued on Sept. 3, 2014 and charges him with a probation violation on an original class C felony charge of possessing a controlled substance from an incident in May 2013.  

Burglary on NE 1289 Road

     On May 26, a St. Clair County deputy took an initial report in reference to a burglary on NE 1289 Road, Osceola. Mary Singleton reported several outbuildings, an old mobile home, and an old school bus were broken into on property owned by David Singleton. Camouflage clothing, roofing nail gun, two chainsaws, several drills, tool boxes full of tools, hammers, three boxes of electrical wire, two boxes of vinyl siding, and 1,000 feet of extension cord were reported stolen.
