A Spring Hill man is in jail on suspicion of homicide.
Miami County Undersheriff Wayne McKinley said deputies continue to investigate the death of Larry Rangel, Spring Hill, though they have arrested Rangel’s roommate, Mark E. Taylor, 52 of Spring Hill in connection with the death.
On Saturday, Jan. 3, at about 1:30 p.m. an individual, saying his friend had shot someone, approached police in the sheriff’s office parking lot.
The alleged suspect, Taylor, also was in the individual’s car. Officers checked Taylor and found outstanding Johnson County warrants. According to the Johnson County Sheriff’s warrant website, Taylor had a warrant for failure to appear for driving under the influence and driving while on a suspended license.
Deputies then responded to 21914 W. 220th Street in Spring Hill, Taylor’s residence. There, they found Rangel, 56, deceased of a possible gunshot wound.
Taylor has not been formally charged. The investigation is ongoing.
