Police Find Car In Connection With Knox County Murders


The Knox County Sheriff said investigators have found the Ford Mustang that has been the focus of the search for a man who was named a person of interest in the deaths of his mother and girlfriend.

Police are searching for 31-year-old Travis Bonham after officers found the bodies of 50-year-old Sandra Stelk and 23-year-old Jaime Barber in a Mount Vernon residence Wednesday.

Authorities found the Mustang on Castine Way in Reynoldsburg.

Knox County Sheriff David Shaffer said the license plate on the vehicle was actually from Ohio not Michigan as previously thought.

Travis Bonham was not located; however police arrested five people on outstanding warrants.

Police believe one of the arrested, 32-year-old Chad Temple, may have been involved in abandoning the 2011 Dodge Charger that was drive by Selk.

Sheriff Shaffer said the investigation and search for Bonham continues.

Bonham is described as a white male, 6'2", with hazel eyes, medium build with many tattoos, including on the face, neck and arms. Family members believe he is armed and dangerous.
