DARKE COUNTY FUGITIVES IN CUSTODY

Darke County Sheriff Mark Whittaker reports the two fugitives, Dean M. Baker and Ashlee Fletcher, have been taken into custody at a truck stop near Ocala, Florida at approximately 10:15 PM tonight August 24, 2022.


Dean M. Baker, age 35, of Greenville and Ashlee Fletcher, age 37, of Greenville were wanted in connection to the death of Corey Fleming. Dean Baker was arrested on charges of Tampering with Evidence, a felony of the third degree. Ashlee Fletcher was arrested on charges of Having Weapons While Under Disability, a felony of the fourth degree.


Darke County Sheriff Mark Whittaker requested the assistance of the Unites States Marshals Service to capture the fugitives, which he believed had fled the State of Ohio. The Southern Ohio Fugitive Apprehension Strike Team (SOFAST) was contacted at the Dayton, OH Office and they accepted the case. SOFAST worked with the Florida Caribbean Regional Fugitive Task Force (FCRFTF) and the Marshals Task Force to find the two subjects and take them into custody.


Baker and Fletcher were developed as persons of interest in the homicide investigation of Corey Fleming who had been missing since August 7, 2022. The body of Corey Fleming was discovered by investigators in a shallow grave at a commercial farm in Brown Township, Darke County, Ohio on August 20, 2022.


Baker and Fletcher will be held in a Marion County, Florida jail pending extradition back to Ohio.


Sheriff Whittaker thanks the US Marshals Service for their quick and effective response in getting these two dangerous criminals into custody.
