A Tennessee man fleeing attempted murder charges for over a year has been captured in Walton County, FL.
Jesse L. Suggs, 37, was arrested at a home on Monday by Walton County Sheriff’s Office and members of the U.S. Marshals Florida Caribbean Regional Task Force after information was obtained that he was wanted out of Lincoln County, Tennessee, for attempted murder.
During the incident, Suggs nearly beat his girlfriend to death and threatened her life and her daughter’s life if she went forward to press charges.
The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department has been actively searching for Suggs since April 2022.
Suggs was taken into custody and transported to the Walton County Jail, where he is awaiting extradition back to Tennessee.
