Following a series of Friday shootings in Tate County that left six people dead, Richard Dale Crum has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder.

According to the Tate County Sheriff’s Office, Crum, 52, went on a “shooting rampage,” killing people at three different locations. Four of the victims — including Crum’s ex-wife — were found dead at a home on Arkabutla Dam Road. Another victim was shot and killed on Ben Road while the last of the six died at a nearby convenience store.

Debra Crum, 60, was previously married to the suspect. George McCain, 73, was the suspect’s stepfather, and Lynda McCain, 78, was the suspect’s aunt. The other victims were Charles Manuel, 76, Chris Boyce, 60, and John Rorie, 59.

As of Friday, Crum had only been charged with one count of first-degree murder. However, Sheriff Brad Lance confirmed that additional charges would be filed in the coming days.

Crum is being held without bond.
